Twist in Ranjit Sinha's case: Ex-CBI director talked to Qureshi in code, AG tells SC

CBI chief Ranjit Sinha
New Delhi, Oct 17: In a twist to the CBI director Ranjit Sinha's case, Attorney General on Friday told the Supreme Court that a former CBI director used to have conversation with Kanpur-based meat exporter Moin Akhtar Qureshi in code language on daily basis.

AG told the court that the duo talked on various issues including helping accused in some cases.

"It is wholly unbecoming of CBI and I am pained to say that," said AG tells Supreme Court on Income Tax report on raids on Qureshi's premises.

According to a PTI report, AG told the court that the ex-CBI director is now a member of UPSC.

The apex court had asked the Attorney General to submit the income tax (IT) appraisal report on Qureshi before it by Friday in connection with a plea against CBI director Ranjit Sinha for allegedly meeting Qureshi about 90 times in the last 15 months.

Qureshi is under IT probe for his alleged hawala dealings. The IT department had conducted raids and recovered a number of things from his residence.

The IT department has seized over Rs 6 crores in cash and 20 lockers in the name of Qureshi's employees during its first raid.
