    The CBI also informed the court that while the appeal against the exoneration of the Hinduja brothers had been filed it had not been listed due to technical defects. The court gave the CBI time till March 28 to rectify the defects.

    Meanwhile Justice A M Khanwilkar recused himself from hearing the case. The CBI said it wanted to file an SLP challenging the Delhi High Court order of May 31, 2005, quashing all charges against the Europe-based Hinduja brothers in the Bofors case.

    The CBI had on January 22, 1990, registered a First Information Report (FIR) for alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating and forgery under the Indian Penal Code (IPC), and sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, against Martin Ardbo, then president of Swedish arms manufacturer Bofors AB, alleged middleman Win Chadha, and the Hindujas.
