Will follow all instructions given by the SC: CBI chief
Ranjit Sinha also refused to comment on government applying pressure on the CBI in the coal scam case.
New Delhi: After the Supreme Court strong comments CBI Director Ranjit Sinha said that the agency will follow all the instructions of the apex court. Sinha welcomed Supreme Court's observations and said that the CBI will try to address all the issues raised by the court.
He said that CBI will submit its probe report with all the informations to the Supreme Court. He added the perception about the agency depended on the people.
Sinha also refused to comment on government applying pressure on the CBI in the coal scam case.
Terming it a "massive breach of trust" and a matter that has "shaken its foundation", the Supreme Court of India on Tuesday took a very serious note of the CBI affidavit on the coal block allocation scam and asserted that the probe agency must be "liberated" and should not be controlled by "political masters". The apex court also slammed the probe agency for having kept the court in the dark on the issue.
The Supreme Court bench said "suppression" of the fact that CBI has shared its probe report with the government is "not ordinary". A bench headed by Justice RM Lodha observed that there was a "very disturbing feature" in the affidavit filed on April 26 by the CBI Director and the agency must be restored to its independent position.
