New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday allowed Delhi Police to arrest Amrapali group chairman and managing director Anil Sharma and two directors forthwith in a criminal complaint filed against them. The apex court also directed attachment of personal properties of Sharma and other directors.

It said the Economic Offence Wing (EoW) of Delhi Police can also arrest Amrapali directors — Shiv Priya and Ajay Kumar — in the case.

A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and U.U. Lalit said: "We had never stopped any agency from arresting the directors, who are currently housed at a hotel under the detention of UP police."

The court is seized of a batch of petitions filed by homebuyers seeking possession of around 42,000 flats booked in different projects of the Amrapali Group.

The three directors, including the CMD, were in the custody of UP police till now according to the direction of the apex court in the case filed by homebuyers.

Now, Delhi Police has been allowed to arrest and interrogate them in a separate case of cheating lodged with its EoW wing.
