The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a public interest litigation petition (PIL) seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into alleged interference by union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde in the Delhi Police investigation into alleged IPL spot-fixing.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice P. Sathasivam said that it could not hear serious allegations just on media reports.

The court told petitioner Shiv Kumar Tripathi that if he had appropriate evidence he should move the appropriate forum.

Mr. Tripathi’s plea is based on BJP leader and former home secretary R.K.Singh’s claim of Mr. Shinde’s interference in the probe.
