CBI order inquiry on Mulayam DA case leak

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) director Ranjit Sinha has ordered an inquiry to determine who leaked information about a corruption case involving Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav. Not denying that the case will be closed, CBI officials said that no decision has been taken yet and an internal enquiry has been ordered.

CBI sources had said that the six-year long investigation into dispropotianate assets case had concluded into whether Yadav and his son Akhilesh had misused public office. Sinha reportedly said on Tuesday that a file on the case has yet to reach him whereas agency sources confirmed that officers handling the case have recommended that it be closed because of insufficient evidence of venality by the Yadavs.

Lawyer Vishwanath Pratap’s petition prompted the Supreme Court to order the CBI inquiry in 2007.
