Due to a lack of time, the Bombay High Court was unable to hear the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) petition asking for the termination of Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut's bail. On Friday, the matter will be heard, according to Justice Bharti Dangre. Justice Dangre refused on Wednesday to revoke Raut's bail in the alleged money laundering case, stating that she could not make such a decision before hearing the opposing side.
 
After the special PMLA court on Wednesday granted bail to Raut and his close aide Pravin Raut, the ED went to the HC to request that their bail be revoked.
Anil Singh, an Additional Solicitor General who was representing ED, had pleaded with the court to halt the order until the hearing on Thursday. The court, however, refused, stating that they could always be taken back into custody if it were decided that the bail should be revoked.
 
The accused may be taken back into custody, according to Justice Dangre, if I rule to revoke the bail after the hearing. The court also noted that Bailey's pleas had been on file with the sessions court for more than a month. "Court sessions lasted for a full month. I'm supposed to pass an order in a day, according to the ED. It will be unfair to both you and them (Raut and Pravin) if you do this "The judge commented.
