Radia Tapes Controversy, CBI informs SC – No Criminal Activity & Requests

NewsDsk, Sept 21– The examination of the taped conversations of former corporate lobbyist Niira Radia with a variety of politicians, businesspeople, and government officials by the Central Bureau of Inquiry (CBI) with the Supreme Court on Wednesday revealed no wrongdoing.

Aishwarya Bhati, additional solicitor general for the CBI, informed the court’s bench about a sealed cover report the agency presented in 2015 detailing the findings of the court-ordered investigation. The bench was presided over by Justice Dhananjaya Y. Chandrachud. All these years, the court never addressed the issue. The investigation has turned up no evidence of criminal activity.

The results of the probe have also been shared with the relevant departments, according to Bhati’s submission before the bench, which also included justices PS Narasimha and Hima Kohli.

Before the court takes up the case in October, CBI is anticipated to file the most recent status report. In 2017, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously in the matter of Justice (retired) KS Puttaswamy, concluding that the right to privacy is one that is guaranteed by the Constitution.

I must inform you that the CBI was tasked by your lordship to investigate all of these exchanges. Following fourteen preliminary queries, your lordships were given the report in a sealed cover.

There was no evidence of crime in them. Additionally, rules about phone tapping have been put in place, “Bhati stated. The attorney representing Tata requested an adjournment right away.

According to Bhati, nothing remained in the case following the privacy ruling, according to Bhati.

“I must tell you that your lordship ordered the CBI to look into all of these talks. 

Your lordships were presented with the report in a sealed cover after fourteen preliminary inquiries were registered. There was no evidence of crime in them. Additionally, there are now rules on phone tapping, according to Bhati, who was quoted by PTI.

The attorney representing Tata had asked for a postponement, but Bhati claimed that nothing was left to be decided in the case due to the privacy verdict.

The petitioner’s attorney informed the Supreme Court that another petition had been submitted by the non-profit Center for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL), asking for the release of the tapes due to the wider public interest.

Speaking on behalf of the CPIL, attorney Prashant Bhushan stated that Radia was a corporate lobbyist for two of the most significant businesses and that it was shown that attempts had been made to influence prominent figures, among other things.
