The Supreme Court on Thursday set aside the Delhi High Court's August 14 order granting bail to Nitin Johari, former chief financial officer (CFO) of Bhushan Steel for alleged fraudulent activities, including filing false documents with various banks.

A bench of Justices N V Ramana, Mohan M Shantanagoudar and Ajay Rastogi passed the judgement on a special leave petition filed by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office.

Justice Shantanagoudar, who pronounced the order, said, "the impugned order is set aside."

The top court had on August 16 stayed the order.

Johari will remain in judicial custody. He was arrested by the SFIO on May 2.

The high court had said the 'mind and will of the company are the main accused, Brij Bhushan Singal and Neeraj Singal, who had been actually controlling the company.'

It had noted accused Brij Bhushan Singal has not been arrested and co-accused Neeraj Singal has already been granted bail.
