2G case: Special public prosecutor asks SC to recall order on whistleblower

Special public prosecutor in 2G case on Thursday asked the Supreme Court to recall its order on revealing name of whistleblower in CBI director’s guest list matter.

He also told the court that no purpose will be achieved by disclosing identity of whistleblower.

Since information is not relating to personal affairs of CBI director, people have right to know regarding his conduct in official capacity, special public prosecutor added.

Meeting of CBI Director with accused in 2G case is definitely improper and It will have to be examined whether such acts amount to contempt of court, SPP told the SC.

The prosecutor had yesterday filed his report before the Supreme Court on the controversy arising out of CBI Director Ranjit Sinha’s residence guest list which purportedly showed that the top cop had frequent meetings with several accused in 2G and Coal blocks allocation scams.

Appearing before a bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu, prosecutor Anand Grover submitted that two reports including one in a sealed envelope have been filed in the court.

The apex court had on September 22 sought the assistance of the prosecutor, appointed by it for trial in 2G cases, saying that any order passed by it may have ramifications on multi-crore scam cases.

It has agreed to hear the plea of NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation which pleaded for recall of its earlier order asking it to reveal the name of the whistleblower in a sealed envelope.

The court had directed that all documents, including CBI files and the visitors’ list register pertaining to the allegations against the top cop, be handed over to Grover, who will go through all the information to assist the court.
