A special CBI court on Monday adjourned the hearing of the cash-at-judges door case to July 6. Arguments will be heard,by the Court,on the issue of framing of charges against the accused and also whether the accused have a case for discharge.
The case was adjourned after counsel for Justice (retd) Nirmal Yadav told the Court that a special leave petition (SLP) filed by Yadav is likely to come up for hearing in the Supreme Court this week. Yadav had moved the apex court against a Punjab and Haryana High Court order wherein it had turned down her demand of photocopies of the entire record pertaining to her prosecution.
The high court,last month,had instead set the special CBI court a deadline to decide the issue of framing of charge against Yadav and other accused in the case. Yadav,a retired Punjab and Haryana High Court Judge,stands charge sheeted in the case. Counsel for Yadav on Monday told the special CBI Judge that Yadavs counsel in Delhi had gone abroad as a result a special mention for hearing of the SLP could not be made during vacations. He added that since the concerned lawyer has returned,he would be making a request,for listing of the SLP,before the Supreme Court on Tuesday.
