Samajwadi Party on Tuesday attacked the CBI over the probe into the disproportionate assets case against party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and demanded examination of the status report filed by the investigating agency in the Supreme Court.

Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh claimed that the third status report of CBI on its probe into the case has 288 "mistakes" and demanded a judicial inquiry to find out how they occurred.

"I do not trust CBI. Its third status report has 288 mistakes. I wonder how all the mistakes committed by the CBI in the status report were against Mulayam Singh Yadav and in favour of Vishwanath Chaturvedi (the advocate who had filed PIL against Yadav)," Singh told reporters here.

"I want the status report to be opened by the court in camera ... There should be an in camera review," he said, significantly soon after the Supreme Court pulled up CBI in connection with the case, saying it was "acting at the behest" of the government.

Singh said he would want the apex court to get the third status report examined by a court appointed chartered accountant. "Otherwise, there could be judicial inquiry to find out how the mistakes were committed."
