Supreme Court declines to oversee CWG probe

The Supreme Court Friday declined to interfere in the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the scam in the preparations for the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

 A bench of Justice R.M. Lodha and Justice Gyan Sudha Misra said the petitioner Delhi Study Group, an NGO, has not pointed to any deficiency in the investigations already carried out by the investigating agency.

 Describing the plea for the court’s intervention into the investigation as premature, the court said that the CBI was already investigating the matter and asked what was the basis for the allegation that the agency would not investigate all facets of the case.

 Declining to entertain the PIL by the Delhi Study Group, the court, however, gave the petitioner liberty to approach it in case there was any deficiency in the probe.

 The court was told that there was apprehension of investigation getting derailed as big names were involved in the scam. The petition has accused the investigating agency of being selective in proceeding against people and not probing the role of the well- positioned politicians including Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and other high officials.
