The Supreme Court got embroiled in the twist & turns in CBI infighting case. Ousted CBI Chief’s response to the sealed copy of CVC (Central Vigilance Commission) findings got leaked in some media portal.
On his way to the courtroom, the CJI today handed over the leaked media report to Verma’s lawyer Fali S Nariman. Mr.Ranjan Gogoi said, “We are giving you this copy as a senior & respected member of the bar and not as Verma’s lawyer”.
On hearing Verma’s petition, the CJI, Ranjan Gogoi said, “None of you deserve a hearing”. Ranjan Gogoi asked to Verma’s lawyer, “How did Verma’s response to CVC findings got leaked”.
Yesterday, Verma filed his response in the SC in time. He was granted 3 hours extra time to do so.
Also senior advocate Fali S Nariman expressed surpise at the leak. He said, “He had worked overnight in the case & the person responsible for this should be summoned”.
The CJI adjourned the case with disappointment. The next hearing is scheduled on November 29.
