Investigating agency can seize passport but cannot retain or impound it: Jammu and Kashmir High Court

The High Court was hearing petitions filed by Raj Singh Gehlot and Aman Gehlot, who are among those accused in a bank fraud case. The two were accused of misappropriating ₹35 crores out of a ₹100 crore loan.

While conducting a search at the residence of the accused, the anti-corruption bureau seized their passports, which were later handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) which is now probing the case.

After the Additional Special Judge, Anti-Corruption at Srinagar dismissed their pleas to release the passport, the two accused moved the High Court for relief.
