Hyderabad: The dispute with regard to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) having to seek consent from the state governments to investigate cases against politicians, state government officers and other individuals in their states is pending before the Supreme Court. 

Former Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh had moved the Supreme Court back then questioning how the CBI had registered a case against him without the state government’s consent, which is mandatory under the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946. 

 

He contended that the CBI did not have jurisdiction to investigate the case under the Prevention of Corruption Act in Himachal Pradesh, without obtaining the permission of the state government under Section 6 of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946 which, according to him, had not been obtained.

The CBI has alleged that Mr Singh and his wife acquired assets disproportionate to their known sources of income during his tenure as Union minister of state from May 28, 2009, to June 26, 2012. The CBI registered the case in 2015

The apex court said that it will examine this crucial issue.
