NEW DELHI - India’s Supreme Court on Feb 24 refused to entertain a Public-Interest Litigation seeking probe in the allegation by former Home Secretary R K Singh that Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had interfered in the inquiry into the Indian Premier League betting scam and prevented Delhi Police from questioning a businessman’s role. A Bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam asked the petitioner to file the complaint before an appropriate authority.
“If you have material, then you file the complaint before appropriate forum,” the bench said. The PIL filed by an advocate sought CBI probe into the issue arising out of Singh’s interview to media. The petition sought action against both Singh and Shinde who were made parties in the case. (PTI)
