‘CBI probe in truck scam won’t unearth the truth’
Prashant Bhushan said the CBI probe into the Tatra truck scam was unlikely to unearth the truth since the investigation agency was controlled by the Central Government.
Thiruvananthapuram: Senior lawyer and Team Anna
member Prashant Bhushan on Saturday said the CBI probe into the
Tatra truck scam was unlikely to unearth the truth since the
investigation agency was controlled by the Central Government.
"Senior defence personnel are supposed to have been involved
in this scam.Can the truth be brought out by investigation by
an agency controlled by the government?", Bhushan asked.
It was in view of this that a campaign for a strong Lokpal
legislation was launched under the leadership of anti-graft
crusader Anna Hazare, Bhushan said.
The country required a totally independent agency to probe
scams and charges of corruption, he told reporters.
Bhushan, here to attend a national media seminar,organised
by `Kerala Kaumudi` daily tomorrow, called on CPI(M) stalwart
and state opposition leader V S Achuthanandan.
