The court of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate at Tis Hazari on Friday allowed the Delhi Police to take voice samples of Shanti Bhushan,Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh to help them with the probe into Bhushans complaint about a CD purportedly containing telephone conversation between him and Yadav. Former Union minister and senior advocate Bhushan had complained that the CD was fabricated to defame him.
On Friday,Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav accepted the Delhi Police plea for securing voice samples to ascertain the motive behind creating the CD. In my considered opinion,the present application filed by the investigation agency,is liable to be allowed as securing the voice sample of the aforesaid persons is very vital for further progress of investigation in the matter, the magistrate said.
The court also allowed the Special Cell of the Delhi Police to get the voice samples of any other person having bearing in preparation of the CD.
Bhushan has maintained that the CD was fabricated to derail the Lokpal movement,of which he is a part along with son Prashant Bhushan.
He had objected to the closure report filed by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police in the matter,after which the court ordered further investigation into the case,including the motive for making the CD. In the closure report,the police had said that the offence of forgery could not be proved.
