CBI director Sinha gets some reprieve, SC gives him 10 days to clear stand

Yesterday, the court had said it may cancel Sinha’s decisions if allegations against him are proved

After the court warned it could cancel all decisions taken by CBI director Ranjit Sinha yesterday, it today gave him 10 days to file a response on a plea that seeks his removal as the CBI chief.

The apex court has posted the matter for further hearing on September 19.

The plea has asked for a SIT probe against Sinha for allegedly protecting the accused in the coal scam case besides his removal as CBI director.

The court’s observation that it could cancel Sinha’s decision came after Prashant Bhushan handed over the original entry register from Sinha’s official residence.

The register purportedly contains the names of top businessmen, politicians and accused persons involved in the 2G case who visited Sinha’s house. Claiming Sinha was trying to protect the accused, Bhushan has demanded his removal from probes into the 2G and coal scams.

Sinha, on his part, has alleged the documents are fake. He has moved court for action against Bhushan and CPIL Secretary Kamini Jaiswal for forgery.
