Ottavio Quattrocchi
New Delhi, Oct 9: Central Bureau of Investigation opposed the plea of an advocate opposing withdrawal of case against Italian businessman Ottavio Quattrocchi in a Delhi court reasoning that a private party had no locus standi in it.

"Publicity and politics" have no role in such matters and the plea of a private party against the CBI's move to close the case be rejected, the probe agency submitted before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja.

CBI responded to advocate Ajay Agrawal's application accusing CBI of trying to close the 'politically-sensitive' case despite 'sufficient evidence' against the 69-year-old Quattrocchi.

Earlier, CBI's prosecutor U S Prasad filed an application before the court seeking withdrawal of the case against Quattrocchi on the ground that 'continuance of his prosecution will be unjustified.'
