“A Civil Dispute”: Delhi High Court stays action against SpiceJet promoter

SpiceJet Promoter Ajay Singh, who was granted interim protection from arrest by the Delhi High Court yesterday in a case of alleged fraud, said he will continue “to extend full cooperation in the matter.”

Emphasizing that the matter was “civil” in nature, Mr Singh termed the police complaint filed against him in the case “mischievous and frivolous”

“Mr Singh will continue to extend full cooperation in the matter to bring this mischievous complaint to a close. It is our belief that the matter is civil in nature and the complaint to the police is entirely frivolous,” said the statement issued by the SpiceJet Promoter.

“The Hon’ble Delhi High Court today stayed the non-bailable warrant issued against Mr. Ajay Singh by a lower court. The warrant was issued because Mr. Singh was unable to appear for a hearing because of covid isolation,” it added.
