The CBI special court on Monday dismissed a petition filed by Pinarayi Vijayan, the CPI (M) Polit Bureau member and the 7th accused in the SNC Lavlin case, seeking a direction to the Central Bureau of Investigation to examine the Union Defence Minister A.K. Antony as a witness in the case.

The court observed that it was not a fit case for such a direction to be ordered. The court made it clear that the investigation officer can proceed with the probe.
