New Delhi, Jan 13: The Supreme Court on Wednesday, Jan 13, left it to the CBI to take action against former Congress MP from Assam, Mani Kumar Subba, who had allegedly acquired Indian citizenship by fraud.
A bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan said, "Let CBI take appropriate action."
The apex court had ordered an inquiry on a PIL alleging that Subba was a resident of Nepal and had acquired Indian citizenship by fraud.
The PIL was filed by a Noida resident, Birendra Nath Singh in 2005.
He had alleged that the then Lok Sabha MP from Tezpur and a lottery baron had come to India after a murder case was registered against him in Nepal in the early 1970s.
