New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday slammed the CBI for dilly-dallying on the issue of prosecuting UP Chief Minister Mayawati in the disproportionate assets case.

A bench of Justices B Sudershan Reddy and S S Nijjar bluntly told the CBI counsel that if it was not keen on pursuing the case, then the "petition must go".
"What is this? Every time, you seek time or an adjournment. Sometimes, you seek time for filing reply, then you say that you want to file a counter-affidavit then you say that you want to file an affidavit."
"If both of you are together then let this petition go," the bench remarked when the CBI counsel sought an adjournment of the matter on the plea of filing a reply in the
case.
