A murder accused on Friday hurled a footwear at a special MCOCA judge in Mumbai accusing him of delaying the case, police sources said.
However, the slipper did not hit the judge, they said.
The incident occurred when the accused, Ganesh Angore, arrested in 2007 in a murder case, was produced before the MCOCA judge Y D Shinde around 3.30 PM.
Ganesh took out a footwear from a plastic bag he had brought with him and threw it at the judge. Police constables present in the court immediately overpowered him and whisked him away.
Ganesh accused the judge of unnecessarily prolonging the trial, police said.
The judge adjourned the court and went into his chamber, but returned after five minutes and continued hearing other matters, they added.
