CBI Apprises SC on Charge Sheet against Maya

The CBI has apprised the Supreme Court that it has readied and scrutinized the charge sheet in against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo Mayawati in disproportionate assets case.

If the apex court okays the charge sheet, it is expected to unfurl a high voltage political drama with summons being served on Mayawati thus enhancing chance of arrest and her seeking bail.

The CBI said that the charge sheet against her has received the green signal from the competent authority for being filed in the trial court.

The Supreme Court ruled last year on May 15 that it would check probe details before going ahead with any order on the case. The court said that this in response to Mayawati’s petition seeking quashing of the FIR in the DA case on the grounds that the Centre was using CBI to settle political scores.

In its fresh affidavit, the CBI said: “the competent authority has already taken a decision to file final report (chargesheet) under Section 173 of the Criminal Procedure Code in the trial court.”

The CBI’s 12-page affidavit was filed a good six days ahead of the scheduled hearing of the case on July 13.

The CBI said the pendency of Mayawati’s plea was only delaying the chargesheet. However, additional advocate general Shail K Dwivedi on Friday sought two weeks’ time from a Bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and P Sathasivam to enable the CM to file her reply to the CBI’s latest affidavit.
