NEW DELHI, Nov 6 - There seems to be no respite for former Union Minister Matang Sinh, with the Supreme Court today rejecting his bail, stating that he will have to wait till investigation by the CBI in his case was over.
Declining the bail to Matang Sinh, the apex court bench, comprising Justice TS Thakur and Justice V Gopala Gowda, said he could make a fresh plea for bail after the investigation on his involvement was over.
�He is a very well connected man,� the bench said as the senior counsel Harin Rawal, appearing for Matang Sinh, told the court that Sinh was not involved in the Saradha chit fund scam.
�Home Secretary, Government of India loses his job and you say that he is not well connected,� Justice Thakur said as Rawal sought to dispel the court�s impression saying: �No, he is not at all well connected�.
Former Union Home Secretary Anil Goswami was sacked by the Union Home Minister after it emerged that he had allegedly tried to stall the arrest of Matang Sinh by the CBI over his alleged involvement in the Saradha chit fund scam.
�Let the investigation be over,� the court said as Rawal told the court that eight other accused in the case have already been granted bail.
