The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice on the Enforcement Directorate's challenge to a Delhi High Court order which allowed Antigua-based Aditya Talwar, an accused in a money laundering case, to appear through his lawyer in a lower court here.

Hearing Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on the ED's objection to the liberty to corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar's son to not appear in person, the bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also stayed the proceedings before High Court.

Aditya, who has not come to India so far, has been made an accused in a case in which his father Deepak Talwar is alleged to have acted as a middleman in negotiations to favour foreign private airlines, causing losses to Air India.

The Enforcement Directorate had last week moved the Supreme Court against a Delhi High Court order which had allowed Antiguan resident Aditya Talwar, son of lobbyist Deepak Talwar, to either appear in person or through his lawyer in court to defend himself against the charges. 

Talwar is imputed, along with son Aditya, of the huge losses incurred by Air India on account of the undue deals he executed in favour of private airlines during the UPA regime, which allegedly involved commissions or bribes in purchases of aircrafts. The financial fix that the national carrier finds itself in today is being blamed on the said deals now.
