Special CBI Judge OP Saini, who was scheduled to record the statements of the accused on Monday, posted it for April 4. He said ‘only half of the work is over’ as preparing questions to be asked from the accused was a lengthy process.

The judge, however, said he would give sets of questions to the accused on April 4 so that they could file their written response within a week.
    
"The other case (against promoters of Essar Group and Loop Telecom) is also listed for April 4. I will be done preparing the questions by then in both the cases. I will give the questions to both the parties and they will submit their written replies within one week," the judge said.

“I am trying to prepare the questions in such a manner that your (accused) work will be done in half-an-hour,” he added.

Earlier on November 27, 2013, the court had concluded recording of statements of CBI witnesses in the case after the deposition of CBI's Superintendent of Police Vivek Priyadarshi, the chief investigating officer, got over.
    
The court has recorded statements of 153 CBI witnesses, including Reliance ADAG chairman Anil Ambani, his wife Tina Ambani, former corporate lobbyist Nira Radia and Attorney
General G E Vahanvati.

The court had also concluded recording of evidence of CBI witnesses in the case arising out of the investigation into the 2G scam involving the promoters of Essar Group, Loop Telecom and others.
