CBI special judge Vimal Kumar granted three weeks to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) to submit its report, along with mirror images of the recordings, placed as evidence by the investigating agency in the ongoing graft case against suspended superintendent of police (SP) Deshraj Singh here on Wednesday.

Deshraj had moved the court seeking mirror images of the recordings in the digital voice recorders and the mobile phone of the complainant, inspector Anokh Singh, which have been placed as evidence in the case.

The directions were issued after CFSL officials claimed that the machines used to develop mirror images could not be brought to the court room.

The case will now come up for hearing on July 1.

Deshraj Singh, 2008-batch officer of the Indian Police Service (IPS), was arrested by CBI in October 2012 on complaint of Chandigarh police inspector Anokh Singh, station house officer (SHO) of the Sector 26 police station.

Superintendant of police (SP), city, Deshraj Singh was holding the additional charge of SP (headquarters), Chandigarh, when CBI arrested him while accepting illegal gratification for getting Anokh Singh a clean chit in the enquiries pending against him.
