Contrary to the earlier claims that the CBI would file a fourth chargesheet in Satyam Computers multi-crore accounting scam case, the counsel for the investigation agency today informed the special court here that filing of fourth chargesheet can not be guaranteed at this point of time.
The court posted the hearing of the case to July 8.
"Letters of Rogatory (LR) were sent to six countries seeking assistance to trace some accounts by the accused. We are awaiting their reply. Based on the reply we may file fourth chargesheet or may not," Surender, counsel for the CBI informed the court adding, "certain issues are hampering the process as the replies have to come from foreign countries."
So far, the CBI filed three chargesheets in Satyam case and said it would file the forth one on funds diversion to various countries.
The investigation agency sent LRs to six countries and is still awaiting replies from two countries. A Letter Rogatory is a formal request from a court here to a foreign court for judicial assistance and will be sent through a diplomatic channel.
Counsel for B Ramalinga Raju, disgraced former chairman of Satyam Computers, argued that without confirming whether fourth chargesheet will be filed or not it is unfair to seek permission for video linkage to examine his client.
