Censuring the CBI for playing “Frankenstein” at times and acting as the “worst investigating agency”, the Supreme Court has questioned its role in not arresting legislator Sita Soren, daughter-in-law of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha chief Sibu Soren and an accused in the state’s 2012 horse trading case.
A Bench led by Justice A K Patnaik also asked the agency on Friday if apprehending only soft targets was what the CBI could understand by getting “autonomy”.
“Sita Soren and two others are absconding. This is absolutely selective. Do you say CBI can’t arrest them? You catch hold of soft target and then oppose their bail,” the Bench said. The court was hearing the bail plea of accused Raj Kumar Agrawal, from whose car a sum of Rs 2.15 crore was recovered during the elections.
Advocate Gopal Subramaniam, appearing for Agrawal, argued that the CBI adopted unfair and partisan approach as it filed closure report against 18 other MLAs while Soren was “gloriously absconding”.
