New Delhi: Dismissing reports of a setback
in the extradition case involving Ravi Shankaran, main accused
in the Naval War Room leak case, the CBI on Tuesday claimed that a
UK-based cyber expert has "wrongly considered" the creation
time of e-mail, presented as evidence by it in a London court.

The agency said there was "no setback" to it in the case
and it will present its views before the Westminster Court on
October 10.

Sources in the CBI said the matter of extradition of Ravi
Shankaran, accused in the Naval war room case was heard by the
court on September 19 where report by a "forensic expert hired
by the defence" placed a report.

"It was claimed (in the report) that an email cannot be
created, documents attached and sent within two seconds. CBI
will present its argument that the expert has wrongly
considered creation time of the `Temporary` internet file,
related to email in question; which is actually an automatic
process in the computer system to cache open files, which can
be recovered in case of any crash" a senior CBI official said.

The official said these files are created every few
minutes and hence there is no setback for the prosecution.
