Ruling on Mahajan's passport issue likely today

Thirty five-year-old Mahajan, son of slain BJP leader Pramod Mahajan, who is facing trial in a drug abuse case and was directed to surrender his passport to the court, on Monday appeared before Additional Sessions Judge J P S Malik accompanied by his newly wed 21-year-old wife, Dimpy Ganguly.

The court posted the matter for Tuesday after Delhi Police counsel sought time on the ground that he has to seek reply from the investigating officer. Public prosecutor Ahmad Khan said he had not been given prior notice on Mahajan’s application for the release of his passport to visit the Maldives between March 9 and March 30.

Khan said this is not the first time Rahul was going abroad for honeymoon, a submission which was strongly objected to by Mahajan’s counsel Ramesh Gupta. Gupta contended that notice on Mahajan’s plea had been given after filing of the application on February 16 for visit abroad with his “would be wife.”
