New Delhi, Aug 17 (IANS) Hearing of the 2G spectrum allocation case in a Delhi court was affected Wednesday due to a lawyers’ strike.

Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge O.P. Saini, who was scheduled to hear the arguments of Asif Balwa, director of Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt. Ltd., put off the hearing till Thursday.

Soon after the proceedings started, a group of lawyers entered the court and requested the judge to put off the hearing.

As per the Supreme Court’s order, the case is supposed to be heard on a daily basis.

Lawyers in all the six district court complexes here struck work to protest the arrest of anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare Tuesday.

Balwa earlier told the court that the probe agency was linking him in two separate money transactions - one, between Dubai-based Etisalat and Swan Telecom and another, between Dynamix Realty to Kusegaon - to prove its case.

He would continue his defence argument Thursday.
