TRS MLAs poaching case: Supreme Court quashes Telangana HC order permitting SIT probe | India News,The Indian Express

Supreme Court bench asks HC judge to consider writ petition filed by the accused ‘on its own merits and in accordance with law’.

The high court division bench had in its November 15 order refused to transfer the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and had asked the SIT under Police Commissioner C V Anand to report to it.

Hearing a petition by the three accused challenging the high court order, a Supreme Court bench of Justices B R Gavai and Vikram Nath asked the “single judge…to consider the writ petition(s) filed by” the accused “on its own merits and in accordance with law, as expeditiously as possible and preferably within four weeks from” the date of its order.

The Supreme Court order of November 21 was uploaded on its official page on November 23.

The apex court noted that the “senior counsel appearing for the petitioner(s) as well as learned counsel for the respondent-State agree that the matter needs to be reconsidered by the learned single judge on its own merits without being influenced by the observations made by the division bench”.

It added, “Even otherwise, we find that some of the directions which are issued by the learned judges of the division bench are not sustainable in law”.
