A bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justices R V Raveendran and M K Sharma also permitted Subba to file his response to the CBI report which was submitted to the court in a sealed cover.
Subba, who is considered to be a lottery king of North-east, was reportedly serving sentence in Nepal and according to the petitioner Birender Nath Singh Subba's original name is Limbo.
CBI has not been able to ascertain Subba's nationality, his birth place, his education till date despite Supreme Court orders and has alleged that it cannot be ascertained where he was born and whether he was a Nepali because the authorities in Nepal were not cooperative.
