The CBI on Friday filed the second status report in the Uttar Pradesh Provident Fund Scam case probe in which the names of judicial officers including the judges of high court and one from apex court have cropped up.

The report was filed in a sealed cover before a Bench headed by Justice Arijit Pasayat.

The apex court asked the CBI to place before it another report relating to the probe in which it has interrogated the persons against whom no adverse findings have emerged.

The investigating agency also sought a direction that the CPWD be asked to make evaluation of the main accused who was arrested in connection with the scam.

The Supreme Court is to hear the matter on April 1.

The Supreme Court had on September 23,2008 transferred the investigations into the UP provident fund scam to the CBI after the Ghaziabad SP,who was probing the case,expressed his inability in carrying out the investigations into the scam involving judicial officers.

The 34 members of judiciary whose names have cropped up in the scam include an apex court judge,seven Allahabad High Court judges,six retired High Court judges and 12 judges from subordinate judiciary in Uttar Pradesh.

According to the CBI,the provident fund savings of Ghaziabad courts employees were illegally used to buy certain household and electronic items for higher and district courts judges.
