The Delhi High Court court has refused to cancel bribery case against Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) No. 2 Rakesh Asthana and ordered the invest. The court has directed the CBI to complete the investigation within 10 weeks and file a charge sheet.

The high court also rejected the contention that the CBI should have taken the government’s sanction before registering the case, underlining that when a cognisable offence is alleged to have been committed, there must be a probe.

In his petition, Asthana had challenged the FIR saying it was motivated at the behest of his boss, CBI director Alok Verma who was sacked by the government on Thursday.
