A Special CBI Court on Friday issued notices to the registrar of the Supreme Court and secretary (justice), Union Ministry of Law asking them to provide the entire record pertaining to sanction of prosecution of retired Punjab and Haryana High Court judge, Nirmal Yadav, in a bribery case.
The court order came after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) submitted the photocopies of the documents that were relating to the sanction of the prosecution of Yadav, who stands chargesheeted in the infamous judge bribery case.
However, the court, while adjourning the case to December 8, ordered the CBI to produce the original documents. On the next date of hearing, arguments will begin for framing of charges.
Earlier, during the last hearing, Yadav had moved an application seeking the documents relating to sanction of her prosecution.
The counsel for CBI, Anupam Gupta, later said that "this is an attempt to delay the trial".
"Since the application moved by the applicant was valid, we have submitted the photocopies of entire record in possession of CBI in a sealed cover," he added.
