The CBI Joint Director's marathon speed has dropped down. He was asked by the Court to explain why he leaked information to media.
THE HIGH Court divisional bench comprising of the Chief Justice PC Ghosh and Justice Praveen Kumar sought the explanation of CBI Joint Director VV Laxminarayana regarding the leakage of information to selective media.
Laxminarayana is investigating Jagan Reddy’s disproportionate assets case and Emar and Gali’s mining case now. The High Court has given him the time to file the explanation by 9th of this month. A man from Guntur named Bhushan Bhavanam filed a PIL seeking action on Laxminarayana for leaking news of these cases from time to time to selective media.
The Division bench also asked the CBI Counsel to suggest that Laxminarayana doesn't talk to media like this in future. The Counsel to the petitioner requested the Court to order the BSNL GM to submit the list of phone calls and SMS list of Laxminarayana to Court. He also alleged that since he started the investigation Laxminarayana was talking to the Andhra Jyoti and Eenadu correspondents and it is against the CBI manual.
