SITARAM Yechury Appreciates SC’s Order Asking Kolkata CP To Cooperate with CBI in Probing Sharada Scam

WELCOMING  Supreme Court’s  order directing Kolkata  Police  Chief  to cooperate with CBI  probing the  Sharada  Chit fund scam ,   CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said the Supreme Court has  shown both the BJP and the TMC were hand in gloves in “sharing the spoils” of the chit fund scam. Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Yechury said the SC did not find anything wrong in the way the CBI had embarked on the investigations into the scam in Kolkata .CBI’s  actions would have been objectionable if the agency had proceeded suo moto. “In this instance, when the judiciary orders the CBI to investigate a case, the CBI’s movement in the investigation into any state or territory cannot be construed as an attack on the authority or the powers of the state government.”What is objectionable if when the CBI suo moto takes action and investigate without permission of the state government? That would be a violation. That is not the case. So it is not a issue of Centre-state relation,” he said.The Supreme Court on Tuesday directed Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to make himself available before the CBI and “faithfully” cooperate with the agency in investigation of cases arising out of the Saradha chit fund scam probe.
