11 January, New Delhi
The Supreme Court Wednesday rejected a plea seeking SIT probe against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other politicians, on allegations of receiving money from two business houses, Aditya-Birla Group and Sahara.
Dismissing the plea filed by an NGO, the apex court said that there was no conclusive evidence in the matter. The Court passed the order after a detailed hearing.
The Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi had earlier in the day told the apex court that there was no credible document or evidence which prove that former Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi was paid by the corporate houses.
Senior apex court lawyer Prashant Bhushan appearing for the petitioner NGO told the court that there was sufficient evidence to prove that public officials were allegedly paid and probe must be ordered to find out the truth.
