“There can be no investigation in such cases”- AG Mukul Rohatgi on ex-CJI, KG Balakrishnan

Murali Krishnan November 17 2015

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi today told the Supreme Court that the petition filed by NGO Common Cause against former Chief Justice of India KG Balakrishnan has been rendered infructuous.

More importantly, he submitted that there cannot be a CBI investigation in such cases wherein the allegations pertain to disproportionate assets, as it will set a bad precedent and may well encourage "wild allegations".
