Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special director Rakesh Asthana has argued before the Delhi High Court that any investigation against him without proper permission will be illegal. Appearing for Asthana before the court, senior advocate Amarendra Sharan told the court that it was a case of illegal registration of FIR against the CBI special director.
“This is a case of illegal registration of FIR against CBI Special Director based on a statement of an accused. The person whose arrest was recommended by Asthana has now been made a complainant and based of his complaint, the FIR has been filed,” Asthana’s lawyer told the court.
The matter has been posted by the court for Monday, October 29, when CBI director Alok Verma has to respond to the allegations levelled by Rakesh Asthana . The Delhi High Court said that no action could be taken against him till the next hearing.
