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.
