The GainBitcoin case gathered a lot of outrage and attention, when the mastermind, Amit Bhardwaj was arrested last year in April from Bangkok airport, as he tried to flee from law enforcement officials.
However, a new facet of the case has come to light, which we weren’t aware of before. Although Bhardwaj is tied up in various litigation cases, from investors he duped, across the country, there is another case he has been linked in. Vikash Aditya, a Gainbitcoin investor who was duped by Bhardwaj said, “Amit Bhardwaj filed for bail petition in Supreme Court for his involvement with Vihaan Group. In a bid to avoid confusion, the Court asked to separate the Vihaan Group case with the other pending GainBitcoin cases. The Court also ordered his medical report to be submitted on April 3.”
As we know, from the time of Bhardwaj’s incarceration, he has gotten himself admitted in Apollo Hospital. He has always maintained that he has non-functioning kidneys resulting in him seeking dialysis treatment.
An anonymous source had earlier told Crypto-News India, “Despite Amit’s PCR ending, he has gotten himself admitted to the Apollo hospital in New Delhi, when he should be in Pune this month, under judicial custody. But under some pretext or other, he has been able to extend his stay in the hospital since the past one and a half months.”
In January this year, the Supreme Court had set down an order stating, “Now, therefore take notice that the writ petition above-mentioned will be posted for hearing along with connected matter before this Court in due course and you may enter appearance before this Court, either in person or through advocate-on-court duly appointed by you in that regard, within 30 days from the date of service of notice. You may therefore show cause to the Court as to why rule nisi (unless) in terms of the prayer as contained in the writ petition should not be issued.”
On the matter of Bhardwaj’s medical report and bail plea, Aditya told Crypto-News India , “If his bail is rejected in the Supreme Court, he won’t have any option. One option is he will start his trial and remains in jail. He may want to offer compensation, in exchange for jail time as he would not want to remain in jail. Let’s wait for April 3 and see what happens on the day.” Aditya added that the case is likely to run for the next few years.
