The verdict in the high-profile murder case of Harpreet Kaur, in which her mother and currently the rural water supply and sanitation minister Bibi Jagir Kaur is an accused, is on the cards with the CBI special judge almost closing the case for judgment, and the next hearing slated for March 30.
On March 9, the court had given the defence and prosecution a week to produce any record pertaining to the case.
As per defence counsel SS Kaler, the court has also procured fresh bail bonds of Rs 50,000 each under Section 437-A of CrPC from all accused. "Let's see how the court proceeds further with the case," he said.
All accused in the case, former Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief Bibi Jagir Kaur, Nishan Singh, Paramjit Singh Raipur, Harminder Singh, Sanjeev Kumar and Dalwinder Kaur Dhesi were present during the proceedings.
The high-profile case has witnessed several twists and turns ever since the trial in the case started almost a decade ago.
Harpreet Kaur, 22, was allegedly poisoned to death on April 20, 2000, after she married Kamaljit Singh against the wishes of her mother, Bibi Jagir Kaur, who was the SGPC chief at that time.
