"However, further investigation revealed the involvement of Chautala to be true. Similarly, Sanjiv Kumar was petitioner in his writ and has presented himself to be a victim and had called himself a whistleblower," the judgment said, adding that this appears to be the reason for him not being named as an accused.
The judge also showed some leniency towards the CBI as the probe was launched three years after the scam, which he said could result in "limitations". "However... I would say the investigation was fair and there is nothing on record that it was biased...for any reasons including the political one," he said.
