Indore: The special CBI court here would hear the RTI activist Shehla Masood murder case from July 13. Bhopal-based interior designer Zahida Pervez is the main accused in the case.

District Judge S S Sisodia on Monday referred the case to the Fourth Additional Sessions Judge Anupam Srivastava, who listed hearing on July 13, Senior Public Prosecutor Hemant Shukla said.

On June 22, Judicial Magistrate (CBI cases) Dr Shubhra Singh committed the trial to Indore District Court, rejecting demand of the accused that the trial be shifted to Bhopal, where the offence had taken place.

Two revision petitions against Magistrate's order would also be heard on July 13. Masood was shot dead outside her house in Koh-e-Fiza locality in Bhopal on August 16, 2011.

While coming out of the court, Zahida told reporters on Monday that Vandana Singh, wife of BJP MLA Dhruv Narayan Singh, had not been questioned by the CBI.

"CBI should make her (Vandana) an accused in the case," Zahida said.

The CBI had questioned the MLA in connection with the case.
