The Supreme Court on 8 December granted bail to Benoy Babu, Regional Manager of Pernod Ricard India, who was arrested in a money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, Live Law has reported.

During the announcing the bail, Justice Sanjiv Khanna said, “You can’t keep people behind bars before trial for long. This is not proper…we still don’t know how this will go…there seems to be a contradiction between what CBI is alleging and ED is alleging..”

Earlier on 4 December, a Delhi court had denied interim bail to Benoy Babu. Babu was earlier on interim bail for 4.5 months on medical grounds, claiming he was suffering from ailments related to a degenerating jaw bone and gum disease.

Babu was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on November 10, 2022 and is currently in judicial custody.
