The Judgement in the Zakia Jafri Case --a criminal revision application filed  by the survivor, Zakia Jafri,  has been deferred. On Monday Morning, Justice Gokhani sat at 11 a.m. and asked the SIT counsel, Ratan Kodekar to be present as she wished certain c;arifications. Thereafter, after sitting again, first at 1 p.m. and then again at 2.30 p.m., counsel Mihir Desai (for Zakia Jafri) and SIT counsel, Vaidyanathan have been asked to remain present next week --at a mutually convenient date --to address the court on clarifications. Presently the date fixed is August 28 but this may be slightly altered. Judgement will be pronounced after that.

Earlier in the day,  the judgement had been fixed for Orders on August 21, 2017.
