‘Fuel adulteration case may take time to conclude’
Dimapur, May 3 (EMN): Another cross examination of complainants by the defence council in connection with the ‘high profile’ fuel adulteration case exposed by ACAUT Nagaland was held on Wednesday at the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM), Dimapur.
Two complainants testified before the court and Public Prosecutor (PP) Hutoi Yeptho said today’s hearing was in connection with the case filed at West Police Station Dimapur. Five of the six accused persons were present at the hearing.
Considering the nature of the case, and 42 with witnesses yet to be testified, the PP said ‘the case may continue till next year’.
He also confided that to wrap up this ‘high profile’ case other cases are still pending. However the PP said it cannot be predicted if the case will come to a conclusion by this year though some issues have been disclosed by the complainants and have been materialised in today’s hearing.
The next hearing was fixed for May 25 where three witnesses – one police officer and ‘two seizure witnesses’ will testify before the court of CJM, the PP said.
