Having received a jolt from the Punjab and Haryana High Court,Justice (retd) Nirmal Yadav will challenge the High Court order in the Apex Court. A statement to this effect was made by counsel for Yadav before a special CBI Court during the resumed hearing of the infamous Cash at Judges Door case.
While dismissing Yadavs petition demanding photocopies of the entire record pertaining to her prosecution sanction,the High Court last week had set a deadline of one month for the CBI Court to decide on the issue of framing of charges against Yadav and other accused. The Court,however,had given Yadav the liberty to inspect the record with the help of an electronic device.
The Court on Saturday adjourned the trial to June 3,allowing Yadav to inspect the record. Meanwhile,Ravinder Singh,the co-accused,a Delhi-based hotelier and close friend of Yadav on Saturday moved an application seeking release of certain documents and properties seized by the CBI.
An amount of over 20 lakh was seized by the investigating agency during a raid conducted on Ravinder Singhs residence in May 2010. The Income Tax Department has started the scrutiny of the amount seized. In order to submit his case for the probe initiated by the Income Tax Department,Ravinder Singh on Saturday moved an application for release of certain documents seized by the CBI.
Appearing on behalf of the CBI,its special public prosecutor,Anupam Gupta submitted that he will respond to Ravinder Singhs application. The case,in which Yadav,a retired Punjab and Haryana High Court Judge stands charge sheeted by the CBI,will now come up for resumed hearing on June 3.
