The Calcutta High Court on Monday took on record the reply filed by Advocate General Kishore Dutta in retaliation to the testimony in reply filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the Narada Scam Case. (In Re: CBI ACB Kolkata v. Shri Firhad Hakim)

The issue surfaced after the Supreme Court laid aside Calcutta High Court’s order date June 9 where the Bench denied to take on record their affidavits stating that “They waited for the arguments in the case to be substantially completed before seeking to place on record their pleadings in response”.

A 5 Judge Bench consisting of Acting Chief Justice and Justice IP Mukherjee, Harish Tandon, Arjit Banerjee and Soumya Sen adjounrned the hearing to September 13 at 11 am for Oral Arguments.

During the Court Proceedings, Acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal made a mention of the de novo Supreme Court’s directions that states that in the interest of the right to speedy justice, time allotted for oral arguments must be short and that if required a written note containing arguments may be allowed to be presented before the Court by the parties involved.

Subsequently, the Court requested the concerned parties to complete the submission of oral arguments a soon as possible.
