Sinha said, "At the same time, while it should become more independent, I am not saying that the CBI should become an agency that is answerable to none."
Sinha spoke to HT at the agency's headquarters hours after his affidavit had detailed at least four changes made in the CBI's coal scam draft probe report by the Law minister and two other senior government officials. While Sinha refused to divulge the details on the exact changes effected by the government, he said, "My intention was clear---I wanted to speak the truth before the Supreme Court and I have spoken the complete truth, I did not conceal anything.
"It is up to the court to decide if the changes effected were major or minor," Sinha said. He said, "I have submitted copies of the original draft and the amended draft, it's up to the SC to decide."
