New Delhi: The Supreme Court directed the CBI to inform it in three weeks about taking over the probe of most of the 185 cases related to the Vyapam scam on Friday
A Bench, led by Chief Justice of India H.L. Dattu, asked the Department of Personnel and Training to inform it by the next hearing on August 7 about filling of vacancies in the CBI as the agency had complained that a shortage of manpower was hindering the probe.
The task of appointing lawyers to prosecute the cases in various special CBI courts in Madhya Pradesh should be completed within six weeks, the Bench told the CBI. “We have so much of faith in you. You take up the cases. Whether it is in Bhopal, Jabhalpur or any other place, you will have your own counsel for prosecution,” the Bench said.
