Air India order for 111 jets under Supreme Court scanner road-and-transport-news



NEW DELHI . The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the CBI to investigate all the alleged irregularities in the procurement of 111 advanced aircraft by Air India for Rs 67,000 crore between 2004 and 2008, when Praful Patel was the civil aviation minister. 
A bench led by Chief Justice JS Khehar, while disposing of a PIL filed by civil society Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL), said that the investigating agency should take into consideration all the allegations and take a call based on the evidence collected.
“We hope and expect that the CBI will adhere to the timeframe (June this year),” given by attorney-general Mukul Rohatgi to give a final report. As and when a final determination is rendered, whether it is proceeding with the criminality or otherwise, it should be open to the party to take a recourse to any legal action if it wants, the CJI said, adding that “you must trust your agencies”.Financial Express
