Ghaziabad: A special CBI court judge on Saturday
asked his reader to translate from English to Hindi his
handwritten orders in the Rs 6.58 crore Provident Fund scam,
considering an application filed by a local advocate.

However, the reader said he failed to understand the
writing of judge A K Singh.

On Thursday, Advocate Sanjay Tyagi requested the judge to
pass orders in the scam in Hindi and not in English as the
language is "unreadable" to him.

Quoting Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju, Tyagi said
"judge must be kind and cooperative to litigants and
advocates" and filed another application in the court today to
make the order "readable". Singh accepted the application.

In his order, Singh had granted bail to all the six
accused retired judges in the Provident Fund scam. The bail
was granted on the basis of two sureties of fixed assets worth
of rupees one lakh each.
