CVC annual report likely to be soon tabled in Parliament

Sources said the report, which will have minute details of all probes undertaken by the anti-corruption watchdog between January and December 2010, has been submitted to President Pratibha Patil on June 30.

"The report has been given to the President as per procedures mentioned in the CVC Act. It may be tabled in the ongoing session," a senior CVC official said requesting anonymity.

"The report includes major portion of investigation carried out by the Chief Technical Examination's wing of the Commission in CWG corruption. It will discuss in details cases," the official said.

The official refused to divulge further details of the report, saying it will be a "breach of Parliament".
