The Supreme Court Monday issued notice to Sahara Group chief Subrata Roy as to why criminal contempt proceedings should not be initiated against him for allegedly interfering in the investigations into the money trails in 2G scam.
The notice has also been issued to journalist Upendra Rai and another person. The apex court bench headed by Justice G.S. Singhvi issued the contempt notice while upholding the maintainability of the contempt plea by Enforcement Directorate (ED) official Rajeshwar Singh.
The court has given Subrata Roy and the other two people four weeks to respond to the contempt notice.
Rajeshwar Singh in his plea said that the alleged contemnors were interfering in his investigations by putting up questions camouflaged as journalistic pursuit.
