The inquiry team headed by former Special Director of CBI, ML Sharma has concluded that the register obtained by advocate Prashant Bhushan from former CBI Director Ranjit Sinha’s residence is genuine. The team has also concluded that Sinha had tried to influence the investigation in certain cases pertaining to coal scam..These facts were revealed in today’s hearing when Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi and petitioner advocate Prashant Bhushan made their submissions..The team, which was appointed by the Supreme Court, had investigated into the allegations against Ranjit Sinha and submitted its report to the Supreme Court on April 6. A copy of the same was handed over to Attorney General for deciding whether the same can be disclosed and to what extent..When the matter came up for hearing today, Rohatgi told the court about the conclusions in the report. He also submitted that it might not be possible to proceed just on the basis of the report of ML Sharma’s team and a court of law might have to examine the evidence..Advocate Prashant Bhushan, however, categorically, submitted that an FIR should be registered and criminal prosecution should be initiated..“It appears that Ranjit Sinha has played a dubious role. It is a clear case for registration of FIR and criminal prosecution. Additionally, it would be contempt of court”, stated Bhushan..The Court has now reserved its verdict on further action with regard to the report..Image taken from here.
