Radia tapes: Supreme Court likely to pronounce order
The investigators would ascertain if there was anything in the transcripts that attracted action under law.
New Delhi: In the 2G case, the Supreme Court is likely to pronounce an order on Thursday on the constitution of the team that will probe the contents of the tapes that contain conversations between former corporate lobbyist Nira Radia and others.
The apex court on February 13 sought the names of officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Income Tax department and Enforcement Directorate who would scan the transcripts of Radia's telephone intercepts. The investigators would ascertain if there was anything in the transcripts that attracted action under law.
The apex court bench of Justice GS Singhvi and Justice SJ Mukhopadhaya asked Additional Solicitor General Harin Raval to give the names of five CBI officers who would go through the transcripts and prepare subject-wise, ministry-wise and time-wise reports for the consideration of the court.
The court also asked Raval to give names of the officers from the Income Tax department and Enforcement Directorate who would be involved in the exercise. The court said it would pass its order on setting up of the team on February 21.
The court was hearing an NGO's plea seeking a direction to make the contents of the transcripts public.
