A Bench, comprising Justice M.B. Shah and Justice Brijesh Kumar, passed the order after it was informed by counsel, Ram Jethmalani and Kapil Sibal, appearing for the three brothers S.P.,G.P. and P.P. Hindujas that the trial in the case might not begin till the end of October as appeals challenging the framing of charges were still pending in the Delhi High Court.
Counsel also submitted that the High Court was also hearing a petition filed by the three seeking quashing of the chargesheet on the ground of delayed trial, which they said was violative of their fundamental rights.
In view of this submission, the Bench, which had permitted the three brothers to stay abroad till August 27, extended it till October 15.
Last month, the Supreme Court quashed a judgment of the Delhi High Court quashing the chargesheet filed against them. Though the apex court had in July last stayed the judgment and permitted the trial to go on, in November the court stopped the trial. Last month, the court allowed the CBI appeal and directed the trial court to proceed further.
