Dismissing reports of a setback in the extradition case involving Ravi Shankaran, main accused in the Naval War Room leak case, the CBI today claimed that a UK-based cyber expert has "wrongly considered" the creation time of email, presented as evidence by it in a London court.
The agency said there was "no setback" to it in the case and it will present its views before the Westminster Court on October 10.
Sources in the CBI said the matter of extradition of Ravi Shankaran, accused in the Naval war room case was heard by the court on September 19 where report by a "forensic expert hired by the defence" placed a report.
"It was claimed (in the report) that an email cannot be created, documents attached and sent within two seconds. CBI will present its argument that the expert has wrongly considered creation time of the 'Temporary' internet file, related to email in question; which is actually an automatic process in the computer system to cache open files, which can be recovered in case of any crash" a senior CBI official said.
The official said these files are created every few minutes and hence there is no set back for the prosecution.
