The Delhi High Court on Tuesday pulled up the police for not investigating the role of 11 MPs allegedly involved in the cash-for-query scam and directed it to complete the investigation within 60 days.
"The whole country had watched the sting operation but the police seems to have no eyes and no ears," Justice S N Dhingra said while directing the police not to single out some persons and leave out the MPs.
It is the obligation of Delhi Police to book all those persons involved in the offence of taking money for raising questions in Parliament, the court said, while passing the order on a petition filed by Anirudh Bahal, Editor-in-Chief of Cobra Post, which carried out the sting operation.
As many as 11 MPs were caught demanding money on camera in the sting operation for allegedly raising questions in Parliament.
