Mumbai, Dec 7 – The Bombay High Court has declined an urgent hearing for the bail plea of bookie Anil Jaisinghani, who has been in custody since April following his arrest in an extortion and bribery case filed by Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s wife, Amruta Fadnavis.

Jaisinghani had approached the High Court after his bail application was rejected by the sessions court last week. His advocate sought an urgent hearing before Justice MS Karnik on Wednesday, emphasizing Jaisinghani’s status as a senior citizen with health issues, facing allegations of forgery and using a fake number plate.

However, the High Court turned down the request for an immediate hearing, citing the complexities of the case.

According to the prosecution, a prior dispute over a land plot in Ulhasnagar had led to frequent altercations and legal actions between the complainant and Jaisinghani. The complainant had faced a rape case in Goa, and on March 6, 2016, Jaisinghani, accompanied by his brother-in-law and Goa police officials, allegedly pursued and collided with the complainant’s car near Sakinaka. The complainant reported the incident to Sakinaka police, resulting in legal intervention.

The case highlights the ongoing legal complexities surrounding Jaisinghani’s charges and the refusal of an expedited hearing by the Bombay High Court.
