SC stays Gauhati HC order

A brief respite for Central Bureau of Investigation. The Supreme Court on Saturday stayed the gauhati High Court  order saying that the investigation agency now at work was unconstitutional.

Taking up the petition moved by the Centre on behalf of the CBI, the apex court stayed the order and fixed December 6 as the next date off hearing.

The centre on Saturday moved the apex court challenging the court order in view of over 9000 pending cases before the investigation agency. Notably, several CBI undertrials moved the court seeking stay in view of the Gauhati High Court’s order.

On Wednesday, in a land mark judgment, a division bench of Gauhati High Court called CBI an unconstitutional body to be operated outside New Delhi.
