The then-state government handed over the inquiry to CBI after Congress alleged a conspiracy. The current Chhattisgarh Chief Minister, Bhupesh Baghel, of the Indian National Congress, happens to be an accused in the case, in addition to former BJP leader Kailash Murarka, who was expelled from the party’s Chhattisgarh unit after being named by the CBI in its chargesheet.”It is not so that the CM has been made an accused because he is the CM. He was an accused even earlier and subsequently, became the CM…witnesses are being threatened. Some witnesses are from Delhi, some from Bombay, some from Chhattisgarh- it is impossible that they would travel to Chhattisgarh when one of the accused is the CM! The trial needs to be shifted to Delhi or any other place as long as it is outside of Chhattisgarh”, urged SG Tushar Mehta before the bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan on Monday.It may be noted that the State of Chhattisgarh had in December last year filed an application for impleadment in the matter as a necessary party.”The state coming here strengthens my case! That the respondent-accused is seeking impleadment is in itself a good enough reason to transfer!”, pressed the SG on Monday.The bench proceeded to list the matter for hearing at a later date.Issuing notice on the CBI’s transfer petition, the Court had in October, 2019, directed that in the meantime, further proceedings in C.C. No.5465 of 2018, titled “Kailash Murarka & Others vs. C.B.I.”, pending before the court of Special Judicial Magistrate (CBI Cases), Raipur, Chhattisgarh, shall remain stayed.Murarka had in September, 2018 said that Chhattisgarh Congress chief Bhupesh Baghel, as he then was, has nothing to do with the case and that he is completely clean. Baghel was sent to judicial custody after the chargesheet was filed, but a court granted him bail.The other accused in the case are senior journalist Vinod Verma, Bhilai-based businessman Vijay Bhatia, Vijay Pandya and Rinku Khanuja. Verma and Bhatia are out on bail, while Khanuja, a Raipur-based automobile dealer, committed suicide in 2018″Next Storylast_img read more
