New Delhi: The Supreme Court Friday asked the Delhi Police Commissioner to probe an IIT professor's complaint that he had been threatened by the Enforcement Directorate chief for writing to the PMO, accusing him of wrongdoing in connection with the black money case.

Prof S K Dubey told a bench of justices B Sudershan Reddy and S S Nijjar that he had lodged a complaint with the the Delhi Police that he had been threatened by ED chief Arun Mathur for writing a letter to the Prime Minister, detailing an alleged incident of corruption against Mathur and his two officials.

Ordering the city police commissioner to probe into the allegation, the bench asked him to submit his action taken report to the court by next Friday when it is slated to hear the matter.

Dubey is one of the petitioners along with former super cop Julius Riberio seeking investigation into the issue of black money deposited in banks abroad and their retrieval.

The bench also asked the Centre and the ED to respond to two affidavits filed by another petitioner Jasveer Singh, pointing out allegations against Mathur and his two associates Prabha Kant and S K Sawhney.

The bench said on the next date of hearing it will also like to seek a specific response from the ED about its investigation into the source of money deposited in foreign banks.

The bench said the Centre will have to clarify its stand on the issue of handing over the investigation of the case to the court-appointed special investigation team.
