Life Mission: Kerala may move Supreme Court against CBI investigation
New Delhi: Kerala may approach the Supreme Court against the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the Life Mission case.
The government held discussions with senior advocates in the apex court in this regard. Kerala has received legal advice that it should file the appeal against the petition filed according to section 482 of CrPC, in the SC.
The government is holding discussions with those including the senior advocate who represented the state in the HC.
The state government had approached the HC under section 482 of CrPC seeking to quash the FIR registered by CBI to probe irregularities in Life Mission Project. Hence, the state government cannot approach the division bench over the matter, the senior advocate informed the state government.
Meanwhile, Unitec had filed the writ petition in the HC seeking to quash the FIR according to article 226 of the constitution. Hence, Unitec can approach the division bench.
The HC had pronounced one verdict in the case after considering the two petitions. Hence, some highly placed officials in the government are of the opinion that the government should join as a party in the petition being submitted by Unitac before the HC division bench and voice its concerns against the CBI probe.
The state government is of the view that the CBI will soon start further actions in the investigation and hence its decision regarding the appeal will not be delayed.
