Kolkata, Oct 11 (UNI) The hearing into the Rizwanur murder case in Calcutta High Court was today adjourned till tomorrow on an appeal by counsel of prime suspect Ashok Todi before the court on grounds that the CBI enquiry was ''itself a contradiction''.

Ashok Todi, a city-based businessman in Kolkata, was the father-in-law of Rizwanur Ahmed, whose body was found lying near the railway tracks on the tracks near a north Kolkata railway station.

Jaymalya Bagchi, Todi's counsel contested the CBI demand before the bench of Justice Soumitro Pal, arguing that the enquiry report on criminal procedings be submitted before the magistrate's court and not the High Court. This was the reason behind the contradiction in the demand for a CBI enquiry before the high court.

The Court would resume the hearing on Friday morning. Earlier, the advocate general concluded the two-day hearing before the bench, saying that the petition was not maintainable.

The government had already completed a judicial enquiry and the CID was also involved in the investigation.

Another lawyer Joy Sengupta also appeared on behalf of the policemen, who had been named in the petition.
