2012 (2) TMI 76 - Supreme Court of India
Center for Pil and Ors. Versus UOI and Ors.
2G Spectrum Scam – PIL for appointment of a group of independent persons to assist the Court in monitoring the investigation being carried out by the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate and the Income Tax Department in '2G case' – Held that:- Though power of superintendence cannot be used by the Central Vigilance Commission for interfering with the manner and method of investigation or consideration of any case by the CBI in a particular manner. However, keeping in view the nature of the case and involvement of large number of influential persons, we feel that it will be appropriate to require the Central Vigilance Commissioner and the Senior Vigilance Commissioner appointed u/s 3(2) of the Central Vigilance Commission Act, 2003 to render assistance to the Court in effectively monitoring the further investigation of the case. This course will be perfectly in tune with the mandate of Section 8(1) of the 2003 Act. Directions for compliance of aforesaid are issued – Decided in favor of petitioner.
