The Supreme Court on Thursday said the Centre was “underprepared” in furnishing details of MPs and MLAs who have criminal cases against them and expressed displeasure over not providing sufficient data, despite a directive last year, to expedite such cases by setting up special courts.

“The union of India is unprepared. We express our anguish”, a bench comprising justices Ranjan Gogoi, Navin Sinha and K M Joseph said Thursday.
