The credibility of CBI is at stake in HZL privatisation probe3 min read . Updated: 09 Feb 2022, 03:31 PM IST
- If what CBI submits to the apex court can be ‘false or wrong’ in one case, what is the guarantee that its submissions on other occasions are free from such flaws?
The Centre informed the Supreme Court that it wants to withdraw the Central Bureau of Investigation's submissions about the 2002 sale by the government of a 26% stake in Hindustan Zinc Ltd, based on which the apex court ordered a full-fledged investigation into alleged irregularities in that act of privatisation by the Vajpayee-led National Democratic Alliance government. The court has rejected this plea, made by the Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta, who told the court, as per a report in the Times of India, that “every line CBI informed SC about the decision-making process…was wrong or false".
