New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India directed the Central Bureau of Investigation not to take up the investigation on the alleged attempt of the Bharatiya Janata Party to poach the legislators of Bharat Rashtra Samithi in Telangana, immediately.

The SC ordered not to begin the investigation until the petition filed by the Telangana government opposing CBI probe is settled. Telangana police had enlisted BDJS leader Thushar Vellappally and many other BJP leaders as accused in the case.

The Telangana High Court had earlier ordered to hand over the case to CBI by dismissing the investigation team formed by the state government. The Telangana government had approached the Supreme Court against it. The state government argued how the CBI can take up an investigation in a case which is against the party in power of the union government.

An SC division bench chaired by justice Kishan Kaul observed that the petition itself will turn insignificant if CBI took up the investigation of the MLA poaching case. The state government’s petition has been reserved to be considered after July 31.
