During the previous hearing earlier this month, the police had told the court that they could not trace the original documents pertaining to certain witness statements. This was repeated on Friday, after the police informed the court that out of 63 such documents, only seven originals are available with them. They sought more time to look for the documents. Even as the police insisted that the copies of these documents are available with it, the defence said that the originals were required.
The actor was not present during the hearing.
His presence was not essential as no witnesses were to identify him.
