The Supreme Court is going to hear a fresh petition by BJP Leader Subramanian Swamy in relation to the Aricel Maxis Case, and against the Enforcement Directorate officer. Arun Kumar Misra and S K Kaul, will also be hearing a counter petition by ED officer Rajeshwar Singh, who has alleged that there have been many attempts to halt or disturb Tthe investigation in the case. A petition has been filed against Singh, by Rajneesh Kapoor, with the allegations that he has collected disproportionate assets that have not been accounted by the authorities and are separate from his home and property, which is made public.
Subramanian’s petition is seeking to make himself a party in the plea made by Rajneesh Kaoor. Indu Malhotra, a judge of Supreme court also avoided hearing of the case without explaining any reason for her withdrawal.
The Supreme Court had previously set the a deadline for March 12, six months for the CBI and ED to wrap the investigation that was concerned with the irregularities in FIPB approval deal. Former Finance Minister, P Chidambaram, his son Karti Chidamabaram, who is also involved in INX media scam, and Nalini Chidambaram are all involved in the case and have been brought in for questioning by the ED.
Subramanian wrote on Twitter, “I was Today in SC which agreed to hear my Impleadment Petition tomorrow on Aircel Maxis scam and the attempt by the Gang of Four to postpone the hearing failed. Is Namo aware what members of his Govt are instructing their lawyers to say in Court?”
In the next tweet, he stated, “Unless PM dismantles the Gang of Four, our actions on corruption will fail.” Swamy is clearly trying to blame the ED and the gang of four. It is yet to be seen what the conclusion of the petition hearing is going to be.
