New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday sought the names of officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Income Tax department and Enforcement Directorate who would scan the transcripts of former corporate lobbyist Nira Radia's telephone intercepts. The investigators would ascertain if there was anything in the transcripts that attracted action under law.
The apex court bench of Justice GS Singhvi and Justice SJ Mukhopadhaya asked Additional Solicitor General Harin Raval to give the names of five CBI officers who would go through the transcripts and prepare subject-wise, ministry-wise and time-wise reports for the consideration of the court.
The court also asked Raval to give names of the officers from the Income Tax department and Enforcement Directorate who would be involved in the exercise. The court said it would pass its order on setting up of the team on February 21.
The court was hearing an NGO's plea seeking a direction to make the contents of the transcripts public.
