New Delhi : The Delhi High Court on Thursday asked the AAP Government to file a reply on the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) plea against a trial court’s order on release of documents in a corruption case against Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar.
Earlier today, the CBI moved the High Court against the lower court’s order on release of the documents.
A trial court yesterday made scathing remarks about the CBI’s conduct in probing the corruption case against Rajendra Kumar and others, saying the agency seemed to be in “haste” and appeared to have “abused its power”.
The court further alleged that the agency did not even carry out a preliminary enquiry before filing the FIR.
The court, however, rejected the government’s prayer for stringent action against the investigating agency officials, who had seized the documents in alleged violation of the provisions of the CBI manual.
The CBI had earlier opposed the government’s plea and argued that even the court had no powers to decide the admissibility of the documents at this stage.
On December 15, the CBI raided the office of Rajendra Kumar in connection with a corruption case. (ANI)
