- Licenses of ‘Khan Chacha’ and ‘Town Hall’ have been cancelled by Delhi authorities
- Navneet Kalra is accused of black marketing oxygen concentrators and is facing a trial
New Delhi: Businessman Navneet Kalra, accused of black marketing oxygen concentrators, on Friday informed the Delhi High Court that the registration certificates of his two restaurants ‘Khan Chacha’ and ‘Town Hall’ at Khan Market has been cancelled by the authorities.
Kalra had challenged May 11 show cause notice and suspension of his licences in the court following his alleged involvement in the case. But now that the licences have cancelled, the plea against suspension doesn’t hold.
The show cause notice and suspension of registration certificates were issued by the Joint Commissioner of Police (Licensing).
The Delhi High Court has now disposed of the case and told Kalra that he may exercise his legal remedies under the law regarding cancellation of certificates of restaurants instead of suspension.
Earlier, the registration of Kalra’s two restaurants was suspended after filing of FIR against him in connection with his alleged role in the hoarding of oxygen concentrators during the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
Kalra had contended that the suspension was illegal and contrary to the provisions of the Delhi Eating houses Registration Regulations as it did not confer power of suspension at the stage of issuance of a show cause notice.
The businessman said that there was no provision to suspend registration certificate merely on the ground of registration of FIR.
On May 29, Kalra was granted bail in the alleged black marketing case by Delhi High Court.
