The Supreme Court on Friday expressed surprise at a PIL seeking directions to National Investigation Agency (NIA)/CBI to investigate the 2008 agreement between Indian National Congress (INC) and the Communist Party of China (CPC) for exchanging high-level information and for cooperation between them under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde said never heard of a foreign government signing an agreement with a political party of another country. The apex court declined to entertain the PIL and asked the petitioners, advocate Shashank Shekhar Jha and Editor-in-Chief of Goa Chronicle Savio Rodrigues, to withdraw the plea and move before an appropriate High Court.
