The High Court had sought a response from the Mumbai Police in a plea by Raj Kundra, alleging that his arrest was illegal as he was not served legal notices as per law. The court said it cannot decide on granting interim relief and pass an order without hearing respondent authorities and adjourned the hearing in the plea.
