AGARTALA, April 29 � A division bench of High Court of Tripura on Wednesday directed the framing of charges against State Law Secretary Data Mohan Jamatia under section 15 of Contempt of Courts Act for making a controversial remark on the judiciary.

After hearing the case, the division bench comprising Chief Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice SC Das asked the counsels of both sides to submit a list of witnesses and documents by May 6 to pave the way for trial of the case.

In course of argument, Kamath, who is representing the Law Secretary said his client has already issued a rebuttal on the news item which appeared in a local Daily. He continued, �My client has already made it clear that the file note had gone missing from the Law Minister�s office. Besides, the text typed in the computer had also been deleted�.

In course of hearing, the Chief Justice said, �It seems somebody is telling a lie but I don�t know who is telling the lie.� Justice Gupta then asked the Law Secretary whether he accepts his guilt. A visibly upset Law Secretary replied, �No�.
