The man arrested on a charge of duping former Chief Justice of India (CJI) was sent to 14 days judicial custody by a Saket court here on Thursday.

Metropolitan Magistrate Vinik Jain sent accused Dinesh Mali to judicial custody after he was produced at the end of his police remand.

Advocate Mahima Misra appeared for the accused while advocate Pratap Venugopal represented complainant Justice R M Lodha.

During the course of hearing, the accused, while handing over a demand draft of Rs 1 lakh, sought compounding of the offence. However, Justice Lodha made it clear that he was not interested in compounding the matter and sought further investigation.

The court also took up a bail application filed by Mali but after noting that the investigation was not yet complete and that the accused could abscond and evade the probe, it dismissed the application.

Former CJI R M Lodha had filed a police complaint alleging that he had transferred a total of Rs one lakh to the account of his friend and colleague Justice BP Singh, which he came to know later was hacked.

Fraudsters allegedly used B P. Singh's email account to dupe Lodha of Rs. 1 lakh by requesting him of financial help from Singh's account. Lodha transferred the amount to the bank account stated in the email. He was later informed that Singh could not log in to his email account as it was hacked. (ANI)
