HC moved seeking direction to CBI on impleading Anil, Ratan

Filing the plea M Furquan, a Delhi-based journalist, and Dharmender Pandey, Ghaziabad's scrap dealer, challenged the special court's order which rejected their plea and also imposed Rs 10,000 as cost on them for filing such a petition early this month.

The High Court is likely to hear the matter tomorrow.

"The applications are not only devoid of any substance but are also contrary to law and deserve to be dismissed with heavy cost as application after application of this nature are being filed by third parties resulting into loss of precious time of the court.

"However, I am inclined to take a little lenient view as far as cost is concerned. Accordingly, both applications are dismissed, subject to nominal cost of Rs 10,000 each," the trial court judge had said.

The complainants had earlier told the court that CBI was "deliberately" suppressing the facts against Ambani and "overlooking" the role of Tata and Radia in the scam.
Furquan and Pandey had also alleged in their separate complaints that CBI was not looking into the matter and trying to protect them.

The trial court had on May 25 had also slapped a fine of Rs 10,000 on a journalist seeking a direction for CBI to make some telecom companies like Videocon-owned Datacom, S-tel, Aircel and Maxis accused in the case.
