Cuttack: The Orissa High Court hearing the case pertaining to assault on advocate by police deferred the hearing to November 12 as the Crime Branch failed to submit a complete chargesheet today.

However, the Bothra who happens to be the Investigating Officer failed to submit the chargesheet and instead sought six weeks to complete the probe.
However, the HC will hear the case on November 12.
On October 30, the Orissa High Court ordered that Justice CR Das of the court will supervise on a day-to-day basis the investigation being conducted by crime branch IGP into the four criminal cases registered in August on the police-lawyer face off.
The Supreme Court in September had entrusted IGP Bothra to investigate the cases.
