Delhi HC allows journalist Rana Ayyub to travel abroad

New Delhi, April 04 (KMS): The Delhi High Court granted a petition filed by journalist Rana Ayyub against the Enforcement Directorate’s decision barring her from leaving the country, citing concerns about evading an ongoing money-laundering investigation.

Rana Ayyub had petitioned the court to overturn the Enforcement Directorate’s decision to bar her from leaving the country. The petition consequently urged that she be allowed to go outside of India, and that any order, Look Out Circular, or instruction barring her from doing so be annulled and set aside.

Ayyub is also slated to travel from London to Rome on April 5, 2022, to deliver the keynote speech at the Perugia International Journalism Festival, 2022, where she will speak about the state of journalism in India, and then return to Mumbai via London on April 11, 2022.
