Radia tapes case: CBI to call for closure now

According to reports, the agency has found no criminality in the 14 preliminary enquiries registered by it on the basis of intercepted conversations of corporate lobbyist Niira Radia and would inform the Supreme Court about it.

CBI sources said the agency has thoroughly checked all the tapes but did not find any material evidence on the basis of which a regular case can be registered in any of the 14 preliminary enquiries. The sources said the apex court would be intimated about the agency’s finding during next hearing, scheduled next month.

They said a final decision on whether to close the inquiries or further probe them will depend on the directions of the Supreme Court, which had handed over the investigation to the bureau, albeit under its monitoring. They said a top journalist from a TV channel and a senior executive of a leading newspaper group have already been examined by the agency.
