The CBI was asked on Wednesday by a Delhi court to respond to sacked Commonwealth Games committee chief Suresh Kalmadi’s plea to clarify if the agency’s probe into a games-related contract, in which he has been arrested, is complete or not.
Mr. Kalmadi’s plea to Special Judge Talwant Singh sought the court’s direction to the CBI to “clarify if the continuing further probe to unearth a larger conspiracy, to identify the money trail and additional facts, is over or not.”
“Issue notice to the CBI for filing reply and arguments on October 29,” the judge said, in its order for CBI’s reply to Mr. Kalmadi’s plea to apprise the court of the probe status.
Mr. Kalmadi also sought the court’s direction to CBI to produce its case diaries before it “for verification of the stage of investigation.”
“It is imperative for further progress of the case that the CBI should clarify as to whether further investigation to unearth the larger conspiracy to identify the money trail and for additional facts is still continuing.
“This court may call for case diaries and peruse the same to satisfy itself regarding the status of such investigation,” the application said.
It also said the CBI, despite probing the same FIR against same accused for last five months, has filed no supplementary charge sheet till date.
The CBI, meanwhile, filed its reply to the plea by co-accused P D Arya and A K Madan, promoters of Faridabad-based firm Gem International, who had sought clarification on the status of the pending probe in the case.
