Defense Lawyers To Challenge Court Procedure

NEW DELHL, India: A lawyer defending the man accused of killing Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi says he plans to raise fresh objections to court procedure when the trial resumes to a top security prison.

 PN, Lekhi representing Satwant Singh who is charged with shooting Mrs. Gandhi last October31, said he would object to the order in which witnesses were due to appear on the grounds that this was unfair to the defense.

Charges against Satwant Singh and two fellow Sikhs accused of conspiracy in the murder will be formally read out at the start of tomorrow’s hearing.
