2G case: Bail plea hearing of five deferred
The hearing on the bail pleas of Asif Balwa and Rajiv Agarwal, both directors of Kusegaon Fruits & Vegetables Pvt Ltd, and Cineyug Films director Karim Morani was deferred till Oct 17.
The hearing on the pleas of Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Balwa and RK Chandolia, ex-personal secretary to former communications minister A Raja, was deferred till Oct 18.
Counsel for Balwa and Agarwal told CBI special judge OP Saini that he will only argue on the bail application after the framing of charges.
Earlier, the bail pleas of DMK MP Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV chief Sharad Kumar were also deferred on the same ground.
The CBI had Friday opposed the bail pleas of the seven accused in the case on the ground that according to the Supreme Court order, their bail pleas could be entertained only after the framing of charges.
