The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain a petition seeking monitoring of the Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the alleged corruption cases related to the Commonwealth Games.

A bench comprising justices R.M. Lodha and Gyan Sudha Misra said there was no need to interfere with the investigation by the CBI into the alleged corruption cases related to the mega sporting event.

“Since the CBI is investigating, we do not want to interfere,” the bench said.

It, however, gave liberty to the petitioner — a Delhi-based non-government organisation — to approach the court if any deficiency was found in the investigation.
