Will pay all dues to depositors in 3 months if released: Nowhera Shaik tells HC

Hyderabad, Aug 22: Nowhera Shaik, the lady boss of the Heera Group of Companies has appealed to the High Court to release her from prison so that she could pay the dues to the depositors of the Heera Group.

Senior advocate P Venugopal, appearing for Shaik on Wednesday told the Telangana High Court that his client would clear all dues to the depositors concerned in three months if she was enlarged on bail. In this regard, the petitioner would give an undertaking, he noted.

Justice Ghandikota Sri Devi was dealing with the three petitions by the Sheik and Heera Gold Exim private Ltd, stating that the state police had no jurisdiction to investigate and to take her into custody, as the Central Government agency Serious Fraud Investigation Office was carrying out the investigation under the rules of the Companies Act.

Shaik complained that she was intentionally detained in jail by the Telangana police since October 15, 2018 by slapping several cases on her, one after another for the same offence with different complaints at various places.

Venugopal submitted that his client was ready to give an undertaking that she would keep her promise to pay the dues within three months, failing which the court could take action under ‘contempt of court’.

The counsel told the court that it was political vendetta against his client to keep her in jail, as she had started a new political party. He added that several complaints were lodged against her in various police stations since August 2018, just prior to the elections in the state and the state police had taken her in custody in October.

Further, he submitted that the complaints were made only after the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) started the investigation into the allegations under the Companies Act for not paying dividends to the depositors.

He also submitted that as the Muslim Law does not allow taking an interest, the Company had collected deposits in the form of units and for every unit there was a lock-in period in which the depositors could not withdraw the money.

As the SFIO had started the investigation against the company for not paying dividends, the state police and state machinery had no role to play in the issue, the counsel concluded. This matter was adjourned to August 28, for the submission of the contention of the complainants, the state police and SFIO.

Bengaluru, Jul 31: BJP leader CP Yogeshwar has slammed Yediyurappa supporters and said the JDS leader HD Kumaraswamy is supporting BJP.

Speaking to the reporters, Yogeshwar said, "Congress president DK Shivakumar and Janata Dal (Secular) leader and former CM HD Kumaraswamy, both are Yediyurappa supporters."

"His words seem to support the BJP. All that Kumaraswamy had said, during our government's rule, are happening including the officers they mentioned are being transferred. He has come forward to support BJP from the back door," Yogeshwar.

While reacting to allegations made by CP Yogeshwar, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president DK Shivakumar has said that earlier Yogeshwar requested for State Legislative Council (MLC) member ticket and now such people are blaming me without any evidence. This shows his dishonesty to his party and the kind of person he is."
