Ajay Chautala case: Court issues warrants against CBI officers
A special court has issued bailable warrants against two CBI officers for not appearing before it to record evidence in a disproportionate assets case against INLD leader Ajay Chautala. Special Judge Sanjay Garg-I also directed a CBI Joint Director to file an action taken report on why summons issued to the agency officials in the case were not forwarded by its senior officers. The court issued bailable warrants and the directions to the Joint Director after being annoyed with the absence of the two CBI officers.
The court was informed by the prosecutor that one of the officers was busy on official duty while the other was suffering from chikungunya. "I am not satisfied with the request as no formal request forwarded by senior official has been received in the court. Bailable warrant in the sum of Rs 5,000 with notice under CrPC be issued against them, for September 26," the judge said.
The judge said "a number of times CBI has been directed to file summons in the court, being forwarded by concerned senior officials for the purpose of supervision of processes issued by this court, but here in this case all the three summons of CBI officials issued by this court are received without any forwarding by the senior officials."
