Judge Sunil Gaur of the Delhi High Court, who rejected Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s bail has been appointed the chairperson of the PMLA Appellate Tribunal.
He retired as a Delhi High Court judge on Thursday, August 22.
He was elevated to the High Court in April 2008. He was designated as a permanent judge on April 11, 2012. During his tenure, he heard several other high profile cases.
Gaur also dealt with some issues arising out of corruption cases, including the money laundering case against controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi.
Denying anticipatory bail to Chidambaram in the INX Media case on Tuesday, the 62-year-old judge had described him as the “kingpin”.
The Congress leader, who was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday night, moved the Supreme Court against the order.
