Jet Airways founder Naresh Goyal has lost the "will to live", his lawyers told the Bombay High Court on Friday. The court reserved its order on the medical bail plea of Goyal, who is said to be suffering from cancer. The single judge bench of Justice NJ Jamadar directed that Goyal not be discharged from the private hospital where he is admitted until May 6, when the court will pass its order.

Goyal has sought interim bail on medical and humanitarian grounds, citing that both he and his wife, Anita Goyal, suffered from cancer.

Harish Salve claimed that Anita Goyal has been given only "a few months" to live by the doctors treating her. The lawyer further stated that while a nurse can be afforded for her at home, the "emotional support" that one needs at this time is missing.

The lawyer stressed that while Section 45 of the PMLA Act is "strict as strict can be", the provision is what makes it humane.

Venegaonkar told the court that the Enforcement Directorate had no objection to Naresh Goyal's further hospitalisation, pointing out that the Jet Airways founder is "not fit to be discharged".
