Centre to move SC against Gauhati HC order on CBI

Taken aback by the Gauhati High Court order holding as unconstitutional the setting up of the CBI, Centre said Thursday night that it would move the Supreme Court as early as Monday next to challenge it.

In a curious judgement, the Gauhati High Court has struck down the resolution through which the Central Bureau Investigation was set up and held all its actions as "unconstitutional".

"The judgement is patently wrong. It is bound to be set aside. We are certainly going to challenge it and the appeal is likely to be filed in the Supreme Court latest by Monday, " Additional Solicitor General PP Malhotra told news agencies.
