Jet Airways official's bail not taken up on Monday

Ghaziabad: The bail plea of a senior Jet Airways official arrested on charges of grabbing municipal land in Ghaziabad was not taken up on Monday because his name was wrongly spelt in official documents, his lawyer said.

The Chief Judicial Magistrate has summoned Avneet Singh Bedi on Tuesday to hear the bail plea.

After his arrest early on Sunday from Delhi, Bedi was produced before a magistrate who sent him to judicial custody.

On Monday, defence lawyer Sudhir Tyagi filed an application before the court saying that the name of the accused had been wrongly stated in the arrest memo as Avneet Singh Seth instead of Avneet Singh Bedi.

The court accepted the documents filed by the lawyer, who told IANS that it was very important to correct the name before the case could be taken up.
