Earlier on January 10, advocate M S Khan, who is appearing for both the accused, had apprised the court that a letter has been sent by his clients to Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde requesting him to transfer the case from the special cell of Delhi Police to National Investigation Agency (NIA).  

The accused had said the matter requires a “thorough and fair” probe as there were loopholes in the version of special cell.
