As reported by Live Law India, Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, who appeared for the NCB, told Justices AS Bopanna and MM Sundresh the grant of the bail is not being challenged. The bench stated in their order, “At this stage the challenge to impugned order may not be required. However, the question of law would be kept open. This judgment of HC would not be taken as a precedent for any other case.”
