New Delhi: A Delhi court will on Tuesday hear the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) plea seeking permission to place on record a CD of 62 intercepted telephonic conversations of former corporate lobbyist Niira Radia with various persons in connection with the 2G spectrum allocation scam case.

A Raja had last week opposed in a Delhi court CBI's plea for placing on record a CD containing recorded conversations and transcripts of calls of Niira Radia.

In a two-page reply before Special CBI Judge O P Saini, Raja had said the agency's plea did not mention the reason for not submitting these documents at the time of filing of charge sheet.

Seeking dismissal of CBI's plea, Mr Raja said that the agency has admitted that the alleged interception was not carried out by it yet its application "does not establish either the time of preparation of the CD, or its handing over, or its safe custody".

Mr Raja also said that though the CBI's application seeks to place on record a letter dated May 20, 2010 by the Income tax Department but it has not been filed by the agency.

Meanwhile, the court had also deferred for July 9 the hearing on CBI's separate plea seeking to make 17 persons as witnesses in the case.
