By asking for the Select Committee to look into the charges against him — some of the findings of the Central Vigilance Commission’s report on these were pretty serious, the court remarked while hearing the case — the Supreme Court has acknowledged that these need further investigation(Ravi Choudhary/HT PHOTO)
