'Unconstitutional CBI': Supreme Court notice to petitioner

CBIThe court sought replies from Kumar and others within four weeks.

The Supreme Court on Friday issued notices on the CBI's appeal against a Gauhati High Court order holding the agency as "unconstitutional". A bench led by Chief Justice P Sathasivam issued notices to Navendra Kumar, on whose petition the high court had ruled that the executive order granting CBI the power under criminal laws was bad in law and hence cannot be sustained. The court sought replies from Kumar and others within four weeks. The CBI, in its appeal, has challenged the high court order saying the court had exceeded its jurisdiction in returning such findings against its constitution. It also said that the executive order was valid in the eye of law.
