CBI begins internal probe into leakage of documents
New Delhi (1st Sept 2014): CBI has begun an internal inquiry to probe leakage of classified documents in connection with the 2G spectrum allocation case as the agency finalised its counter arguments in the Supreme Court tomorrow over charges levelled by an NGO that the agency's Director Ranjit Sinha was delaying trial in the scam.
Ahead of the hearing tomorrow, a series of meetings was held with the counsel representing CBI in the apex court where the agency will impress upon alleged twisting of facts by the counsel of the NGO, Centre for Public Interest Litigation, Prashant Bhushan, official sources said.
CBI has objected to the claims made by Bhushan in his petition that its Director had been reprimanded in coal scam by the Supreme Court saying that there was no order in connection with this, they said.
CBI will also inform the Supreme Court about leakage of documents from the agency and also that an internal probe had been ordered to fix those responsible for the act of passing on internal file notings and classified notes outside the agency.
CBI will convey to the Supreme Court that since many provisions of the Right to Information Act were not applicable to the agency, how could the counsel for the NGO have access to the internal file notings, they said.
The internal inquiry is to find the "mole" within the organisation, the sources said.
