New Delhi, May 27: A lawyer, representing two absconding accused in a CWG-related corruption case, on May 26 landed himself in a tricky situation for seeking recall of a court order that declared them proclaimed offenders, but got out of it by telling the court that he did not remember what he told it minutes ago.

Advocate Ravi Ranjan had moved the court on behalf of Anil Madan and Purushottam Dev Arya, the two promoters of Faridabad-based Gem International, seeking recall of its order that declared them proclaimed offenders.

But as Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh had a couple of days earlier taken up their applications, duly signed by the duo and attested by the oath commissioner, he summoned both the Oath Commissioner and the counsel to ascertain if the accused had personally signed the documents.

Appearing today before the court, responding to its summons, Oath Commissioner Meena Sharma testified before it that the two accused had indeed been to her office in the Patiala House court premises to sign their affidavit, which was attested by her later.

Asked by the judge, she also produced before him her the register that the two had purportedly signed for buying stamp papers for making their affidavits.
