ISRO espionage case: Apex court ready to hear plea against anticipatory bail to four people


A bench of Supreme Court Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice CT Ravikumar issued notice on the petition and listed it for hearing on November 29. The High Court had on August 13 granted anticipatory bail to the four accused in the case.

Those who were granted anticipatory bail by the High Court include RB Sreekumar Vijayan, Thampi S Durga Dutt and PS Jayaprakash. Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, appearing for the Central Bureau of Investigation, told the apex court that getting anticipatory bail could derail the investigation in the case.

He said that the CBI in its investigation has found that some scientists were tortured and implicated in this case, due to which the development of cryogenic engine was affected and India’s space program went back by almost a decade or two.
