Special public prosecutor for CBI, Anupam Gupta, opposed the demand to summon documents relating to Yadav'sprosecution sanction and said that this is not the stage for production and proof of the documents/ records. He added that the "present application (by Yadav) is only an attempt by the accused to delay and drag out her trial"
Stating that the sanction for prosecution of Justice (retd) Nirmal Yadav is "completely legal, constitutional and valid", the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has told the special CBI Court that "there is absolutely no infirmity" in Yadav's prosecution sanction.
Though opposing the demand made by Justice Yadav to summon documents relating to her prosecution sanction, the CBI, last week, produced the relevant record in a sealed cover for the perusal of the court. This, special public prosecutor for CBI, Anupam Gupta said, has been done in order to "obviate any further delay and to ensure expeditious trial of the accused".
Gupta said that this is not the stage for summoning, production and proof of the documents/ records relating to Yadav's sanction but the CBI does not want the trial to be delayed. He added that the "present application (by Yadav) is only an attempt by the accused to delay and drag out her trial".
He added that the CBI has produced, in a sealed cover, photcopies of documents spread over three files of the CBI. The pagination given in sealed cover corresponds to the original pagination.
It might be mentioned here that it is the same record which was produced by the CBI before the Punjab and Haryana High Court last year after Yadav had demanded quashing of the charge sheet issued against her by the CBI. Nirmal Yadav stands charge sheeted in the infamous judge bribery case.
Senior lawyer Anupam Gupta, on behalf of CBI also stated that the investigating agency has "no objection" if the court summons the "relevant documents/ record relating to sanction for prosecution" of Justice Yadav from the central government and the Registrar-General, Supreme Court.
