CBI filed an application before the apex court in December 2008, seeking to withdraw its earlier view in favour of registering a regular case. It said that it was making this submission on the advice of the government.
What was the outcome?
In March 2009, the SC reserved its order on CBI's December 2008 plea. On February 17, 2011, it reserved its order on Mulayam and family's March 16, 2007 plea to quash the PE. On December 13, 2012, a Bench comprising CJI Kabir and Justice H L Dattu asked the CBI to proceed with the case against Mulayam and his sons, and file the status report to the court not government. The case against Dimple is to be dropped.
What happens now?
CBI will have to register regular disproportionate assets cases against Mulayam and his sons. As the probe proceeds, members of the family may be questioned in person.
