2G case: CBI files more documents in the court
The CBI is creating an unnecessary hurdle in smooth functioning of this trial said Vinod Goenka's counsel.

New Delhi: The CBI submitted on Tuesday to a Delhi court yet more documents related to the 2G spectrum allocation case amid various defence counsel opposing the agency's way of filing documents in installments.

Special Judge O P Saini, however, took the CBI documents on record after counsel for various accused in the case relented to it as the court directed the CBI to file all relevant documents in the case, possibly in one go as far as feasible.

"Whatever documents are there in the possession of the CBI or seized by it should be filed in the court," Special CBI Judge OP Saini said.

As CBI prosecutor AK Singh filed an application to submit more documents to the beginning of the day's proceedings, the defence counsel began opposing CBI's plea saying it should not be allowed as it would prejudice the case against the accused.

The counsel also argued the agency should be stopped from this kind of practice as they file documents in middle of the trial which would adversely affect the case of the accused.

"This is not an ordinary trial. Eyes of the whole nation are on this case and the Supreme Court is also monitoring its proceedings. The CBI's application does not deserve to be allowed and if it is allowed, two things should be made clear that no other application of this kind will be approved in future and the court should also decide how we will cross examine previous witnesses.

"The CBI is creating an unnecessary hurdle in smooth functioning of this trial," said counsel Majid Memon for accused DB Realty MD Vinod Goenka.

The arguments advanced by various defence counsel opposing CBI's application prompted the judge to ask the agency as to how long will it continue filing additional documents.

"How many times it will be continued?," the judge said. To this, the CBI prosecutor said he was not in a position to answer the question as it was upto the investigating officer (IO) of the case.
