New Delhi, Nov 20: In a rap to CBI Director Ranjit Sinha, the Supreme Court on Thursday directed him not to interfere in the 2G spectrum case and recuse himself from its investigation and prosecution.
An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice H.L. Dattu said that the senior-most officer heading the investigation team probing the 2G case will take over the overall investigations.
Holding as "terrible" the allegations of interference by Sinha in the 2G spectrum case, the court recalled its Sep 15 order directing NGO CPIS to reveal the identity of the whistleblower who gave information on Sinha's alleged interference.
The court while not passing a detailed order with reasons said that it was doing so as it would effect and hurt the image of the premier investigation agency.
