The court, however, put various conditions on the accused, including that he won’t be able to leave the country without its prior permission.

It also asked the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police why no investigation was done between January 2018 and June 2019 into the claims of other investors.A magisterial court had denied him bail on June 13, saying thousands of investors were affected and only a few had approached the court.Chadha is the director of Uppal-Chadha Hi-tech Developers Private Limited.
