|Court rejects Chandraswami's request|
New Delhi, Feb 20: A court here today dismissed godman Chandraswamy's application seeking to summon Saudi Arabia-based international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi as a witness in a FERA (Foriegn Exchange Regulation Act) case.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Kamini Lau rejected the application of the controversial godman, which had requested the court to examine Khashoggi, who lives in Riyadh, via video conferencing as his defence witness.
Chandraswami is being tried on a complaint made by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for acquiring and transferring Pounds Sterling 6,000 in violation of FERA provisions. (Agencies)
