HC grants anticipatory bail to Stayzilla co-promoter Sachit Singhi

The Madras High Court has granted anticipatory bail to Sanchit Singhi, co-promoter of online home stay aggregator startup Stayzilla.

Singhi has been granted the bail in a case that was registered against him and Stayzilla’s CEO Yogendra Vasupal for allegedly duping Jigsaw Advertising of Rs 1.68 crore.

While Vasupal was arrested on March 14, Singhi was said to be absconding and having moved the court for anticipatory bail. Vasupal was granted bail on the condition of furnishing a personal bond of Rs 40 lakh.
