After this, the hearing came to an end after the arguments from both the sides were completed. The court had reserved the order.
During the hearing, Parth's lawyer said that till now no one has come forward who has said that Partha Chatterjee has demanded a bribe. Be it CBI or ED, no such allegations have been leveled in front of anyone. Can agencies produce any such witness? Partha Chatterjee has nothing to do with the case.
