Vanzara's lawyer V D Gajjar said that as he did not receive a copy of the order from the court then, therefore on what grounds the court refused to give a copy of the supplementary chargesheet could not be known. He also said he intended to question this rejection order in higher courts.
CBI filed an additional chargesheet in this case on February 6 against four central IB officers, including ex-special director, Rajinder Kumar. Vanzara, whose name appeared in the first chargesheet last year, sought a copy of the chargesheet, but the court said that it had not taken cognizance of it.
Vanzara's lawyer submitted before the court that it is a court of records and it cannot sit over the document without taking cognizance of the chargesheet. And Vanzara, being in the court's custody only, has got right on the chargesheet.
However, CBI's lawyer opposed this application and said that taking cognizance of the chargesheet in in court's domain and CBI has not requested it that it may not take cognizance. But since the first chargesheet filed against Vanzara was sent to the trial court, the accused should not demand the chargesheet from the magisterial court.
After hearing the arguments, the court turned down Vanzara's application.
