Tweeted by AIR
The Delhi High Court has granted two more months to the Central Bureau of Investigation to complete probe in a bribery case allegedly involving the agency's then Special Director Rakesh Asthana.

Justice Vibhu Bakhru today made it clear that no further time will be granted to the agency to complete the investigation in the case. The court passed the order while disposing of a plea by the CBI seeking extension of time to complete the probe in the case by six months. Additional Solicitor General Vikramjit Banerjee, representing the CBI, said Letters Rogatory has been sent to the USA and UAE and the response is awaited due to which the investigation could not be completed. He urged the court to grant three more months to complete the probe.

Asthana was booked on the allegations of criminal conspiracy, corruption and criminal misconduct under relevant sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
