A Delhi court on Tuesday asked the CBI to urgently make arrangements for sending the body of A.E. Pinto, an accused in the urea scam case, to London. Pinto (63), a UK national of Brazilian origin, died yesterday following prolonged illness.

Special Judge Pradeep Chaddah passed the order on an application filed by Pinto’s wife Eugenia Teles.

Advocate Wills Mathews had filed the application on behalf of Teles, who has sent an e-mail communication pleading that her husband’s body be brought back to the UK.

The CBI said it would get the body embalmed and dispatched to London on its own expenses from where Pinto’s wife may collect it.

The court said, “The CBI submitted that it will speed up the process and dispatch the body after due formalities. Let the required be done in a day or two.”
