Sinha to file case of perjury
CBI Director Ranjit Sinha, who has been accused of meeting representatives of a company facing trial in the 2G spectrum case at his residence on several occasions, has decided to file a case of perjury against those who made “intentional false statement” against him in the Supreme Court.
“Mr. Sinha has, on the basis of legal advice, decided to file a case of perjury for malicious, deliberate and intentional false statement made before the apex court,” CBI spokesperson Kanchan Prasad said.
The CBI chief had on Wednesday denied the existence of any visitors’ register at his official residence, on the basis of which allegations have been made against him.
“There are only two registers maintained at my residence. Since I am a Z-category protectee, security cover is provided to me by the Delhi Police. They maintain a register to record my movements and another to log entry of their own personnel,” Mr. Sinha said.
Eminent lawyer Prashant Bhushan has accused Mr. Sinha of meeting Reliance executives on a regular basis.
