New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has criticized the functioning of CBI saying the investigating agency prefers not to arrest influential people in corruption cases.
The court made the remarks when a person accused of theft pleaded for bail contending that even a former union minister, who was allegedly involved in a multi-crore scam, was granted such relief.
“The case of Sukh Ram was not a case of theft. It was a case of disproportion assets and CBI is known for the fact that it does not arrest the persons against whom it registers cases but simply files chargesheet and more so when the persons involved hold high positions,” Justice S N Dhingra said.
In this case, the police alleged the accused Brij Mohan is involved along with others in a case of theft of Rs 27.50 lakh by taking out money from the dickey of a person.
The police, after conducting an investigation, recovered a part of the theft amount.
The court, while dismissing his bail plea, also took into consideration the fact that the accused failed to mention the source of the money recovered from him.
“There were sufficient grounds for the court to presume that the accused was surviving only on the booty of crime, being done in connivance and in league with Satnam Singh.
“I do not find ground for grant of bail to the accused.
The bail application of the accused is hereby dismissed,” the court said.
