Opposing businessman Navneet Kalra’s bail application, Delhi police told a Delhi court that his bail should be dismissed because he had “ruined our company name”. Kalra is accused of black marketing of oxygen concentrators which are essential in the treatment of patients with Covid-19.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Arun Kumar Garg will issue the order on Kalra’s bail application on Saturday at 4 p.m.
Seeking dismissal of Kalra’s bail application, Additional Attorney General Atul Srivastava, who represented Delhi Police, said: “He did not surrender when the High Court heard the case. . He was hiding. He was arrested in Gurugram. Considering the situation, he also ruined the name of our company. For this reason, the deposit must be rejected. “
Srivastava told the court that Kalra was deceiving customers by stating that her rescue equipment was of high quality, when two legal reports showed that was not the case. “You kept all these products at Khan Chacha (a restaurant in Delhi). You don’t have quality control management. You did not employ anybody. You did not provide any quality control. This too in a situation where buyers are on a deathbed just to make money. Isn’t that cheating?
“It’s useless and as good as a dabba. People were on the deathbed. The Indian government claims that their use on light and moderate people will cause them harm, ”the APP added.
Srivastava told the court that “WHO guidelines state that the oxygen level should be above 30% in concentrators. Charity doesn’t come at the cost of a little money. He does not do any charity. If you had sold it at cost it would have been charity. But they sold it for a much higher price.
Shrivastava further told the court: “What is cheating? Here it is not premium, I have no connection with Germany, the flow is not there and not suitable for one person. “
Senior lawyer Vikas Pahwa, who represented Kalra, refuted the APP’s arguments and told the court: “The first argument put forward was that there was a representation on the app showing that the products were from Germany. . But the performance was from August 2020. The sale was in May 2021. “
Pahwa asked the court whether Kalra could be held responsible for a statement made in August 2020 when her interaction with the Matrix importer was in May 2021.
Regarding a letter written about the poor quality of the equipment provided by Kalra, Pahwa told the court: “For opposing my release on bail, they said yes, they had a duty. But no effort has been made by them to remove the hubs from the covid centers. This letter is only eye drops. If the Delhi Police is a responsible authority, why did they not write to the Indian government that these oxygen concentrators are harmful and should not be imported? “
Rejecting the APP’s submission on the AIIMS report stating that Kalra sold substandard equipment, Pahwa told the court: “The AIIMS report is eye drops. If you give someone the wrong report, wrong results will come. Garbage in, Garbage out is what we learned in computers. The AIIMS report shows that they relied on the Shri Ram lab report. They haven’t seen the hubs.
