New Delhi: There was no relief for Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and his sons Akhilesh and Prateek in the disproportionate assets case. The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that the Central Bureau of Investigation can continue to probe allegations against Mulayam, Akhilesh and Prateek independently.
The court has ruled that the CBI does not have to report to the Centre in the case. Meanwhile, the case against Akhilesh Yadav's wife Dimple Yadav has been dropped.
"We are modifying our order of March 1, 2007 to remove the error in it directing CBI to place the report before the government," the bench said, making it clear that the agency will have to place the probe report before the apex court. The bench said, "Since CBI is an independent body", there is no obligation for it to file the status report before the government.
