The special CBI court on Friday adjourned the cash-at-judge's door case of 2008 for March 21 to start arguments for framing of charges while accepting the main accused, former high court judge Nirmal Yadav's application for exemption from personal appearance due to backache.

The case came up for hearing before the special CBI judge Vimal Kumar.

However, CBI's special public prosecutor Anupam Gupta moved an application in the court against one of the co-accused advocate Sanjiv Bansal.

He said, “Sanjiv Bansal had given a written statement to the police that the packet of money (Rs 15 lakh) that his munshi delivered was to be given to one, Nirmal Singh and did not know about any Nirmal Yadav. This particular application was not attached in the chargesheet and since, Bansal last week moved an application to be discharged from the case, CBI has taken this step.”

Bansal had given a one page statement to the police regarding the delivering of the money to one Nirmal Singh, who when contacted and identified had denied knowing any Sanjiv Bansal. The CBI declared that since there was a discharge application filed, it wanted to know the root cause of the issue and also how the application was never attached in the chargesheet.

However, Bansal had last week filed an application under Section 227 of CrPC stating that since the chargesheet in its entirety does not make out any case for his prosecution, he should be discharged from the case. He has raised various questions on CBI's investigations into the case.

Bansal has sought time to reply against the application moved by the CBI and the CBI has also sought time to go through the written statement made by Bansal.

“We had moved an application for relaxation since justice Nirmal Yadav(retd) is suffering from severe backache. The next date has been set for arguments for framing of charges along with replying of application moved against Bansal and by CBI,” said the accused Vishal Garg Narwana's counsel.
