CWG: Court slaps Rs 10k fine on CBI for ‘conduct’

The CBI has come in for a censure from a Delhi court for delaying proceedings in the Commonwealth Games scam case. The court has slapped a cost of Rs 10,000 on the CBI for its ‘unwarranted conduct’ in creating ‘unnecessary confusion’ and delay in the proceedings in a Commonwealth Games-related corruption case in which Congress MP Suresh Kalmadi and others are facing trial.

The court directed the CBI to deposit the cost in the Prime Minister’s relief fund while allowing their plea for placing on record some additional documents and list of some additional prosecution witnesses to be called for recording of their statement in the case. ‘The application of the prosecution is allowed only in the interest of justice,’ Special CBI Judge Ravinder Kaur said.
