Patna High Court on Friday dismissed the bail petition of former Patna district magistrate Gautam Goswami, the key accused in the multi-crore flood relief scam, and three other accused.
Opposing the bail plea of Goswami, Bihar Vigilance Bureau lawyer Y V Giri said that since the former DM was one of the key accused in the flood relief scam, it will be inappropriate to grant him bail, particularly when the investigation was reaching a critical stage.
Goswami and other accused have now decided to move the Supreme Court for bail.
