New Delhi: A Supreme Court judge on Monday recused from hearing the bail plea of former UP cabinet minister Babu Singh Kushwaha who is in jail since March 3, 2012 in the multi-crore National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) scam case.

Justice RK Agrawal, who was heading the vacation bench that comprised Justice Amitava Roy also, recused himself from hearing the plea of the jailed politician but did not assign any reasons in court.

The bench then posted the matter on July 8, saying let the other court hear it.

Earlier, a vacation bench headed by Justice AK Sikri had issued notice to CBI and sought its response by Monday.

The politician in his plea has said that he has been in prison for over three years and charges have also been framed in the case.

On February 13, the apex court had dismissed Kushwaha's bail plea, saying the allegations against him were very "serious" and it was a "good case for dismissal".

The bench, however, had allowed Kushwaha to move lower court for bail if the trial does not commence within six months.

In July last year, the former minister had approached the apex court challenging the Allahabad High Court order rejecting his bail plea in the scam which had taken place during the previous Bahujan Samaj Party government headed by Mayawati.

The case is being investigated by the CBI which has submitted charge sheet against the accused persons. The trial is going on in a CBI court at Ghaziabad.
