New Delhi: A plea has been filed before a
Delhi court on Tuesday challenging a city police report recommending closure of a case registered on the basis of an
audio CD having purported conversations between noted lawyer
Shanti Bhushan and political leaders Mulayam Singh Yadav and
Advocates Bhim Pratap Singh and Sanjeev Tayal in their
four-page petition, sought "appropriate action" to bring the
culprits to trial under the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act
and said the closure report should not be accepted.
"If the closure report submitted by L N Rao, Additional
DCP, Special Cell, Delhi is accepted, that will bring an
impression among the general public at large that certain
influential persons, who are projecting and pretending
themselves as most honest persons on this earth, would be
demanding huge money of Rs four crore in the name of judges
and thus committing offence under the PC Act."
"These persons are also guilty of maligning the image of
Indian Judiciary," the petition said.
It added as per the closure report, the investigating
officer (IO) has found a prima facie case for demanding money
in the name of judges.
