‘Arrest illegal and void’: Delhi court orders release of 3 Vivo India staff

A Delhi Court Saturday ordered the release of three senior employees of Vivo’s India unit, who were arrested in an alleged money laundering case.

CEO of Vivo India Hong Xuquan, Chief Financial Officer of Vivo India Harinder Dahiya and consultant Hemant Munjal who were arrested earlier this month by the Enforcement Directorate have been in police custody for over a week.

Noting that the accused were not brought before the concerned court within 24 hours of their arrest on December 21, Additional District Judge Shirish Aggarwal ordered the release of the three, declaring their arrests as “illegal and void.”

Instructing the accused to provide personal bonds amounting to Rs 2 lakh, the court imposed specific conditions, including refraining from tampering with evidence, seeking trial court permission before leaving India, and surrendering their passports to the court.
