Joint Registrar Girish Katpalia recused himself from hearing the case saying: “because of my good relations with some of them, I cannot hear this matter.”  Jethmalani contended that the board took the decision without giving him an opportunity to defend himself.  Jethmalani has demanded Rs. 50 lakh in damages from the board members, barring Narendra Modi and Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The matter will come up for hearing on October 28 before another court.
