New Delhi: The irrelevant and out of context questions posed by the defence counsel to a CBI witness in the 2G telecom spectrum case on Thursday irked a Delhi Court which warned them to "behave" properly.

Special CBI Judge O P Saini was annoyed as one of the defence counsel started posing questions like "how many districts are there in India and how many people reside in the country" to prosecution witness Tarun Das, Deputy Advisor at Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).

"What is this? What does it mean that you (defence counsel) are asking the witness to tell how many districts are there in India, name them and how many people reside in India and in Mumbai? Is it possible to know the answer of these questions? What type of questions are they?," the judge said.

The judge further asked the lawyers to behave properly and to cooperate with the court in conducting the proceedings.
