CBI Director Ranjit Sinha triggered a massive outrage across the nation with his brazen defence for sharing the coalgate status report with the Law Minister before it was filed in the Supreme Court. He claimed that CBI was part of the government and not autonomous.
While talking to the media, Ranjit Sinha said that he did no wrong by showing the coalgate status report to the Law Minister, as he was not an outsider. “The CBI is not an autonomous body. I am part of the government. I have shown the report to the Law Minister of the country,” he added.
Earlier, the CBI Director had admitted that changes were made to the original draft after the meeting between the CBI and Law Ministry. He has already given all details to the Supreme Court, which will give its verdict on May 8.
