The Supreme Court on Friday sought to know from the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) about the action taken by it on the complaints received about corruption from whistle-blowers.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice YK Sabharwal granted six weeks to the CVC to give a detail report in this regard.

The order to this effect was passed during the hearing of a petition filed by an NGO, Parivartan, which has sought special investigation into the murder of Satyendra Dubey, an engineer of National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), who was associated with the Golden Quadrilateral project in Bihar.

After hearing the NGO's counsel Prashant Bhushan, the Court also asked the CBI to see whether verification of contractors involved in the project during Dubey's tenure can be done or not.

The NGO had not only sought investigation into Dubey's murder but also into the allegations of corruption.
