Denying all the allegations made by 2G petitioner Centre for Public Interest and Litigation (CPIL), the CBI Friday moved the Supreme Court seeking initiation of perjury charges against Kamini Jaiswal, the NGO’s advocate.

The application, filed by RC Tiwari, CBI’s joint director for the Delhi zone, said that CPIL’s charges were an attempt to get favourable orders from the court.

The application is likely to be heard on September 8, when a bench headed by Justice HL Dattu will consider CPIL’s latest submission demanding Sinha’s removal from supervising the 2G probe as his residence’s visitors register reveals he held meetings with top executives of ADAG Reliance.

Tiwari denied Sinha had protected Dayanidhi Maran in the Aircel-Maxis deal. The application also stated that the alleged removal of DIG Sanjeev Rastogi — from the team of investigators probing the 2G case — was untrue. The application also deemed false a claim that Sinha was admonished by the court during the coal scam hearing for showing status report to political bosses.
