A local court on Saturday transferred to a fast track court the case pertaining to alleged incorrect information furnished by Bollywood actor and BJP candidate from Bikaner, Dharmendra in his nomination paper about his second marriage to actress and Rajya Sabha MP Hema Malini.

The case was transferred by the district judge, Sheela Khanna to the fast track court of additional district judge SK Jain.

According to advocate Shailendra Dwivedi, the fast track court has fixed May 12 as next date for hearing in the case.

Hearing a revision petition filed by two Congress leaders, Akthar Beg and KK Mishra, after a local court dismissed their complaint, the judge transferred the case to a fast track court.

The Congress leaders complaint was dismissed on the ground of not providing the copy of the nomination papers along with the complaint to establish what information the actor turned politician had not revealed.

The complainants have also submitted a complaint cum petition to the President, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, demanding disqualification of Hema Malini from the Upper House for allegedly mentioning Dharmendra's name as her husband in the nomination papers while till date they have not made public any information about their marriage.

The Congress leaders alleged in their complaint that Dharmendra `embraced Islam to marry Hema Malini without divorcing his first wife and thus violating both Hindu Marriage Act and Islamic Shariyat'.
