FIR against Dayanidhi Maran soon : CBI to Supreme Court

The CBI on Wednesday informed the apex court that the final decision on filing FIR against Maran will be taken by September 30th. CBI also filed its status report in the 2G scam before the bench of Justice G S Singvi and Justice A K Ganguli.

Not disclosing the details in the open court, the CBI read out certain portions whereby it informed that the PE is going on against Dayanidhi Maran on his alleged role in Aircel deal and the investigation will be complete in few days.

Starting his arguments on the issue of whether the court should discontinue monitoring the CBI probe, noted lawyer Prashant Bhushan suggested formation of SIT to investigate the matter. ''..Designate CBI team as SIT nd appoint two or three persons to supervise what they are doing just as the Supreme Court has done in Black Money case..''

Bhushan went on to argue that most of the officers in CBI are IPS officers and their cadre controlling authority remains with the home minister. In such a scenario, it is beyond imagination that they will investigate the role of home minister.

Bhushan also expressed his apprehension over the proceedings going on in the lower court. ''..Now A Raja is saying in his defence that all his decisions were approved by the then finance minister...''

Accusing CBI of double speak, Prashant Bhushan argued that CBI kept informing the court that they will be filing third chargesheet in the court but now we are informed that the investigation is over and the court should stop monitoring the investigation.

Raising questions over the failure of the CBI to look into the role of Swan telecom and Unitech telecom in the entire scam, Bhushan said monitoring of the investigation is absolutely necessary.

Citing orders of the apex court in cases like Sohrabuddin fake encounter, Bhushan said in that case the investigation was entrusted to CBI even after the chargesheet was filed in the case.

In the mean time, the Supreme Court has also sought finance ministry files relating to decision making process at the time P Chidambaram was finance minister.The matter shall continue tomorrow.
The matter shall continue tomorrow.
