New Delhi, Sep 24 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today pulled up senior lawyers R K Anand and I U Khan for not filing their reply in the contempt of court proceedings against them following the BMW sting operation in which they were shown ''influencing'' controversial eyewitness Sunil Kulkarni.

The lawyers were charged with contempt of court proceedings for allegedly abusing the process of law to favour their client.

A Division Bench comprising Justices Manmohan Sarin and S K Misra directed the lawyers to file their reply within a week.

The bench also directed the TV channel, which carried out the sting operation, to provide all the six CDs to the accused within a day. The direction came after the lawyers contended that they had not been provided with all the CDs.

Earlier, R K Anand had filed a petition in the court praying that Justice Manmohan Sarin should refrain himself from the case as there was some personal bias between them.

The bench, however, said both the cases were separate and should be dealt with separately UNI
