Indore: Arguments on the bail applications of the four accused in honey trap case could not be held in Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court on Tuesday as the government sought time to present some documents related to the case.
Giving time to the government, the court extended hearing till June 29.
Honey trap case accused Shweta Vijay Jain, Shweta Swapnil Jain, Abhishek and Monica are in jail for a long time. The four accused had submitted bail petitions in the High Court saying that the court may take a long time in deciding the case.
