 SC seeks report from CVC on complaints by whistle-blowers

Press Trust of India

New Delhi, September 29, 2006

The Supreme Court on Friday sought to know from the Central Vigilance
Commission (CVC) about the action taken by it on the complaints
received about corruption from whistle-blowers.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice YK Sabharwal granted six weeks to the
CVC to give a detail report in this regard.

The order to this effect was passed during the hearing of a petition
filed by an NGO, Parivartan, which has sought special investigation
into the murder of Satyendra Dubey, an engineer of National Highway
Authority of India (NHAI), who was associated with the Golden
Quadrilateral project in Bihar.

After hearing the NGO’s counsel Prashant Bhushan, the Court also asked
the CBI to see whether verification of contractors involved in the
project during Dubey’s tenure can be done or not.

The NGO had not only sought investigation into Dubey’s murder but also
into the allegations of corruption.
