The CBI has informed the Supreme Court that it has "so far" found no criminality in the 14 preliminary enquiries it registered on the court's directions in the Niira Radia case.

While submitting the report on December 16, the agency asked the court for another month to probe the contents of the telephonic conversations handed over to it by the Income-Tax department. This is significant because prominent journalists and the corporate manager of a media house figure among the persons whose statements have been recorded by the CBI in the two months since the PEs were registered.

Conversations of at least four journalists with Radia were among those flagged by the CBI in a status report it prepared for the apex court earlier. The court asked the agency to investigate nearly all the matters.

The apex court will take cognizance of the status report next week.

CBI officials said several big names from the print and electronic media and corporate world figured in the tapes that are still to be examined.
