NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned for tomorrow a plea by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking impleadment in a case filed against an Enforcement Directorate officer investigating the Aircel-Maxis deal.

A vacation bench of Justices Arun Mishra and S K Kaul directed Swamy to serve the copy of his application to the petitioner Rajneesh Kapur who has filed the case against ED officer Rajeshwar Singh. The bench also asked Kapur to be present tomorrow during the hearing of the case. The bench also said that it will also take up for hearing tomorrow the contempt petition filed by Rajeshwar Singh, who had sought initiation of contempt proceedings as attempts have been made to thwart the ongoing investigation in the Aircel-Maxis case.

In his petition, Kapur has alleged that Singh, the investigating officer in the Aircel-Maxis case, has amassed disproportionate assets beyond the known sources of his income. Early this year, the court had set a deadline of six months for the CBI and ED to complete the investigation into the alleged irregularities in FIPB approval given in the Aircel-Maxis deal case in which former finance minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti have been questioned by probe agencies.
