A reported judgement by Assam HC on CBI status is bound to create lot of confusionnI have seen a news report in internet news sites and in leading newspaers that, in a particular case before it, Asam High Court has given a judgement which has mentioned ""the actions of the CBI, in registering a case, arresting a person as an offender, conducting search and seizure, prosecuting an accused etc. offend Article 21 of the Constitution and are, therefore, liable to be struck down as unconstitutional." ".
Though this judgement is on a particular case, the resultant discussion on the very foundation and existence of CBI can create a lot of confusion.
The news report also quotes in inverted commas the following portion also: "We hereby...set aside and quash the impugned Resolution, dated 01.04.1963, whereby CBI has been constituted... We do hold that the CBI is neither an organ nor a part of the Delhi Special Police Establishment (DSPE) and the CBI cannot be treated as a 'police force' constituted under the DSPE Act, 1946,"
There is still space for appeal. However the news item was given less priority in the paper I read and was displayed in an inner page cornet. I also did not read any response from any prominent legal or political luminaries till now.
What is your view and guess i this matter friends?
