2G: HC judge recuses from hearing plea of Karunanidhi’s wife

A day after entertaining a plea of former Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal, a Delhi high court judge on Wedensday recused from hearing her petition challenging a trial court order dismissing her plea for exemption from appearing as a witness in the 2G case. Justice Veena Birbal, who on Tuesday had observed that the petition was to stall the proceedings, today refused to hear Ammal’s petition without citing any reason.

‘I cannot hear the matter. It has to be listed before another bench,’ Justice Birbal said and referred the plea to the judge in-charge of criminal cases.
