CBI special judge Vimal Kumar allowed the application of suspended superintendent of police, Deshraj Singh, facing a graft case, seeking a copy of the recordings placed as evidence by the investigating agency here on Friday.

Accepting Deshraj's plea, the court directed CBI to get the mirror images of the digital voice recorders as well as mobile phone of the complainant, inspector Anokh Singh, which have been placed as evidence in the case.

CBI had been directed to get mirror images of these devices through a CFSL voice spectrographic expert. The next date of hearing is June 4.

Deshraj Singh, a 2008-batch officer of India Police Service (IPS), was arrested by CBI in October 2012 on the complaint of Chandigarh police inspector Anokh Singh, SHO of Sector 26 police station. SP, city, Deshraj Singh, was holding the additional charge of SP, headquarters, Chandigarh, when CBI arrested him while accepting illegal gratification for getting Anokh a clean chit in the pending enquiries against him.
