Senior advocate Anand Grover on Wednesday filed his report on whether the Supreme Court could take up an application to stop CBI Director Ranjit Sinha from supervising the 2G case without knowing the identity of the whistleblower who provided information regarding frequent meetings between the accused in the case and the agency boss.
Grover, CBI special public prosecutor in the 2G trial, also gave another report on Sinha’s file notings that allegedly virtually altered CBI’s stand in the case before the trial court. Sinha made these notings when CBI was to file its response in SC to appeals filed by 2G scam accused seeking discharge.
The allegations against Sinha have been levelled by activist organization Centre for Public Interest and Litigation (CPIL), petitioner in the 2G spectrum scam before SC.
Appearing before a bench headed by Chief Justice HL Dattu, Grover submitted the two reports, including one in a sealed envelope, to the court. Sources said Grover has support of CPIL’s contention that the court should not force the petitioner to reveal the whistleblower’s name.
SC had on September 22 sought Grover’s assistance, saying that any order passed by it may have ramifications on multi-crore scam cases.
