All does not seem to be well: SC on charges against CBI chief

Ticking off the CBI, the Supreme Court today observed that apparently "all is not well" and seemingly the allegations made by the NGO against CBI Director Ranjit Sinha has "some credibility".

"For us, it appears that all is not well and prima facie it seemss that allegations made in the application by NGO has some credibility," the apex court said while hearing the case related to allegations by the NGO, Centre for Public Interest Litigation, that Sinha might have tried to save some accused in 2G spectrum scam.

Sinha had yesterday told the apex court that DIG-rank CBI officer Santosh Rastogi was a "mole" who passed on certain file notings and documents to the NGO on the basis of which baseless and false case was filed against him.

Special Public Prosecutor Anand Grover today said that Sinha had interfered in the 2G case which is completely inconsistent with the agendy's stand.

"Our case in 2G could have been demolished, if Sinha's stand was accepted," Grover told the highest court.

The SC also said that shifting Rastogi from 2G probe was overreach of it's order.
The Apex court also expressed displeasure over the presence of a number of CBI officers in the court room.

Around eight CBI officers were present in the court room, who left after the SC's observation.
