Former DGP Swaraj Puri has filed a revision petition at Indore High Court bench with a plea to issue notice of contempt to erring officials of State Economic Offence Wing for deliberately misconstruing the order of Special Judge issued on September 15, 2006.

Puri, through his counsel Ajay V Gupta, appealed to the court to order scrapping of FIR registered against him by the EOW. The revision petition maintained that under no circumstances could the EOW file FIR against him because the Special Judge Akhilesh Pandya had only asked EOW police officer of the rank of Deputy Superintendent of Police to investigate into allegations to ascertain whether there were sufficient grounds for proceeding against the accused.

The petitioner also requested to take back inquiry from the EOW and get it done by other magistrate as provided under
Section 202 of Cr PC.

The case has been listed for hearing at HC on October 7.  Puri filed similar application before the Special Judge at Indore district court. The latter reserved the order for judgement till October 6.
