In more trouble for Central Bureau Investigation Director Ranjit Sinha, the Supreme Court on Monday asked Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Anand Grover to look into allegations against Sinha in the 2G spectrum allocation case. Senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan has alleged that Sinha met suspects in the high-profile case.
The apex court said, “View of the SPP has to be considered as any order by us would have ramification in 2G cases.”
The court has said that all documents including CBI file notings and visitors’ register of the Director’s residence be given to SPP.
The court has also turned down Sinha’s plea that the case filed against him should not be heard and be dismissed. Sinha told court that there has been no interference in any of the cases probed by the CBI.
He added, “Identity of the mole must be disclosed before apex court hears the case further.”
The matter has been listed for further hearing on October 10. The court has agreed to hear the NGO’s plea for recalling its order by which it had directed that name of whistleblower be revealed.
The NGO has tendered unconditional apology before the Supreme Court for its inability to reveal the name of the whistleblower.
