The apex court in India has asked Ranjit Sinha, CBI director, to respond to allegations made by an NGO CPIL, which claims that the CBI chief had been frequently meeting with those accused in 2G case and other such cases.

The Supreme court bench headed by Chief Justice designate Justice H.L. Dattu has given a week’s time to Sinha to respond to the allegations. The bench said “we want a fair trial (in 2G cases) and if averment (made by Centre for Public Interest Litigation) is true, then there is some derailment of the trial. Then how can you call it a fair trial.”

The court also asked petitioner advocate Kamini Jaiswal on Ranjit Sinha’s plea that the affidavit filed by her, alleging acts of wrongdoing against him, were based on false statements or mis-statements.

In the meantime, counsel Prashant Bhushan handed over to the court what he described as an original copy of the entry register showing accused in 2G and other cases being probed by the agency were visiting the residence of CBI director.

He said that the register was handed over to him at night by strangers.

The court took the register in its custody.
