A Delhi court on Tuesday, restrained the city police from arresting Bina Ramani's husband George Malihot without serving him a week's notice in a cheating and forgery case in which, the socialite has already got a bail.
The order was passed by Additional Sessions Judge Sukhvinder Kaur after hearing Mailhot's anticipatory bail application.
Ramani's husband, a Canadian national and key witness in the Jessica Lall murder case, had moved the court fearing his arrest in the wake of Delhi Police's submission during the hearing of his wife's bail plea that he could also be implicated as an accused in the cheating and forgery case.
Ramani was released on bail in the case on September 15. She was arrested in Goa on September 6, after a non-bailable warrant issued two days earlier. According to the FIR lodged on March 6 this year, Ramani obtained the license to run a restaurant misrepresenting that she was the owner of the restaurant named 'Qutub Colonade' on the basis of forged documents and served liquor without having any valid licence.
She allegedly submitted a forged rent note, receipts, a NOC and a ration card.
