Supreme Court says Ex-CBI chief Ranjit Sinha needs to probed for protecting accused in coalgate

NationSupreme Court has said that Ex-CBI chief Ranjit Sinha needs to probed for protecting accused in coalgate. It  has termed inappropriate the meetings of ex-CBI chief Ranjit Sinhawith various accused at his residence.

A bench, comprising Justices MB Lokur, Kurian Joseph and AK Sikri, had reserved its judgement on April 13 in the matter in which Sinha had claimed that a “hidden hand” was the “controlling mind” of lawyer Prashant Bhushan, who has filed the petition on behalf of the NGO, and has accused him of interfering and scuttling the probe into the coalgate.

A bench headed by Madan B Lokur said that Sinha meeting various accused multiple times, when the probe against them was on, is highly inappropriate and it needed to be probed.

The bench also sought assistance of the CVC to decide how the probe should be done against the former CBI chief.

The court asked the CVC to file response by July 6.
