Metropolitan Magistrate Sudesh Kumar, who on the last date of hearing had sought some clarifications from Tejinder Singh as to what were the independent roles of the persons named as accused in the plea, has fixed for Saturday to pronounce his order.

The court had earlier recorded Tejinder Singh's statement and pre-summoning evidence in support of his complaint over a press release alleging that he had offered bribe on behalf of Tatra and Vectra Ltd, which supplies vehicles to BEML.

He had denied having made Rs. 14 crore bribe offer to the Army chief to strike the defence deal.
