HC stays its order to shift 2G case trial to Tihar Jail
TT Correspondent |  |  23 Nov 2011

The Delhi High Court today stayed its order to shift the trial of the 2G spectrum case accused to the high-security Tihar Jail from Patiala House court in the heart of the Capital.

The stay came after the accused in the 2G case, their relatives and lawyers had expressed their unhappiness over yesterday's announcement of shifting of the trial. Former Telecom Minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi are among the accused in the case.

The seven-judge administrative committee headed by Acting Chief Justice A K Sikri said the court's administrative notification yesterday to shift the trial will not come into effect and that the hearing will continue in the Patiala House court complex itself till an alternative arrangement is made.

The administrative committee also said a group of high court judges, lawyers and the judge-in-charge of the Patiala House courts will inspect the lower court premises again to explore the possibility of shifting the trial to a more spacious courtroom inside the court complex itself. Sessions Judge, the judge in-charge of Patiala House Courts, Special CBI Judge O P Saini, Registrar General of the Delhi High Court will be part of the group. "If such arrangements do not work out, then the committee may also consider to shift the trial to nearby places such as Vigyan Bhawan and Pragati Maidan in the vicinity," one of the lawyers, who was part of the in-chamber hearing on the issue, said outside the courtroom.
