Former Interim CBI Chief Nageshwar Rao renders unconditional apology to SC
New Delhi, Feb 11: Former Interim CBI Chief M Nageshwar Rao filed an affidavit rendering an unconditional apology to the Supreme Court.
"I ought not have agreed with the legal advice for relieving AK Sharma even on his promotion without prior approval of SC. I admit that in view of the orders dated 31.10.2018 and 28.11.2018 passed by SC earlier, " said Nageshwar Rao in his affidavit.
Nageshwar Rao apologised a day before he is to appear before the apex court for contempt of court for AK Sharma 's removal.
Last week, the Supreme Court had summoned senior CBI officer M Nageswara Rao over the transfer of officer A K Sharma, who was probing the Bihar shelter home cases, calling it a contempt of court.
The court has asked Rao and other officers to be present on February 12 and directed the agency to identify officers who were involved in the transfer of Sharma.
"We are going to take it very very seriously. You have played with order of Supreme Court of India. God help you. Never play with the Supreme Court's order," news agency ANI quoted the Chief Justice as saying after the CBI counsel informed the court that two officials including M Nageswara Rao were involved in transferring Sharma.
