This is the second time the agency has moved an application seeking in-camera hearings in the case.india Updated: Jul 10, 2006 21:32 IST
The CBI on Monday moved a Delhi court seeking in-camera proceedings in the Navy War Room Leak trial, almost a week after it chargesheeted five accused, including Naval Chief Arun Prakash's nephew Ravi Shankaran, of leaking sensitive information.
The probe agency, quoting the "sensitive nature" of the case, requested Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Seema Maini to hold further proceedings in-camera. The application has been posted for hearing on July 14.
This is the second time the agency has moved an application seeking in-camera hearings in the case.
Meanwhile, another accused chargesheeted in the case, former Naval Commander Vijender Rana, on Monday complained to the court that the chargesheet filed by the CBI on July 3 was "not conclusive and did not attach any of the articles seized or documents mentioned in the annexure or contain statements of the witnesses".
The application, which is to be heard along with the agency's application, follows an earlier court order that the CBI was at liberty to file a supplementary chargesheet in the case if the on-going probe into the matter produced any further evidence.
The court would also hear on July 14 the bail application of Kulbushan Parashar, who is accused of forging links with higher defence officials occupying sensitive posts to draw crucial data from them.
