Mumbai: The special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) judge hearing the case of alleged fake-encounter cases of gangster Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Tulsi Prajapati was transferred late on Wednesday.

Due to judge JT Utpat`s transfer, the CBI court adjourned the hearing on the Amit Shah`s discharge plea.

Utpat was transferred to Pune, after which the court hearing was adjourned till July 2.
Incidentally, last week, judge Utpat had reprimanded Shah`s advocate for filing an exemption application without assigning any reason to it.

"Every time you are giving this exemption application without assigning any reason," judge Utpat had said.
The court had on May 9 issued summonses to Shah and other accused in the case, which had been transferred from Gujarat.
