The court adjourned the matter till that date for pronouncing the order on a regular bail application.
Special Judge Shailendra Malik on Friday after hearing the matter said the order on the bail application of Jacqueline is not ready and adjourned till November 15 the pronouncement.
The actor’s counsel submitted in the bail application that she has appeared twice for questioning before investing agency and was never arrested.
