NEWDELHI: A Special CBI Judge on Wednesday adjourned further hearing of the 2G trial till Monday stating that he required time to consider the plea of Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy seeking prosecution of Home Minister P Chidambaram in the case.
Special CBI judge O P Saini, who has been hearing the case on a day-to-day basis, said he needs time to consider Swamy’s plea which is listed for order on February 4. “Complaint case titled Dr Subramanian Swamy versus A Raja and others is coming for order on February 4, 2012, which requires sufficient time for consideration, this case would not be listed for February 2 and 3, 2012,” said Saini. The court had earlier reserved order on Swamy’s plea for February 4 after the latter concluded his arguments. The decision to adjourn the trial came at the end of Wednesday’s proceedings during which the statement of prosecution witness Reliance Infrastructure Ltd’s senior executive vice president Ashish Tambawala was taken.
