received an anonymous letter stating that the court "is being
managed" in the case.

"An anonymous letter has come to us. The allegations are
that we are being managed," a bench comprising justices G S
Singhvi and A K Ganguly said during the hearing of the
petition seeking monotoring of the investigation into the

That anonymous letter is part of the office record now. The
allegations are that we have been managed," the bench said.

of it," the bench said.

While the bench was making reference of the letter,
Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium, senior advocates K K
Venugopal and T R Andhyarujina appearing for CBI and former
Telecom Minister A Raja, suggested that the bench should
ignore such a letter and throw it in the basket.

must have put on record on the direction of some officials.

called for.

open court.
