Christian Michel moves bail plea in a Delhi court, submitting he ‘wishes to attend the holy mass on the Easter day’. His plea will be heard Thursday.
In a plea before a Delhi court, Michel also accuses Modi government of using the ED, other investigating agencies for political purposes.

The reaction came after a Delhi court-imposed restrictions on Michel meeting his lawyers in Enforcement Directorate (ED), as he was found misusing legal access.
Michel was produced before a Delhi court which allowed his five-day custodial interrogation by the CBI.
Michel, a British national, is wanted in India in connection with the AgustaWestland VVIP choppers scam.
