AHMEDABAD, May 28 � Former Supreme Court judge Justice M B Shah, who is to head the Special Investigation Team (SIT) into the black money issue, today said there are a number of �complexities� involved, but asserted he would ensure a speedy probe, reports PTI.
The Narendra Modi Cabinet at its very first meeting yesterday announced that a SIT headed by Shah would be constituted to unearth black money.
�A number of complexities would be there, but at present it is difficult for me to say which complexities I would face. But I will try to solve them as early as possible,� Justice (retd) Shah told PTI by phone.
Asked about the past record of delays in submission of inquiry commission/committee reports, the former judge said he would try to �finish the work as early as possible.�
�I was the Chairman of a Commission on illegal mining of iron ore (in Odisha and Goa). I submitted the first interim report within two months (of starting probe).
�Thereafter, the Goa report within six months. And thereafter the further report of Odisha in next six months. So I am sure that I will finish the work (probe in black money issue) as early as possible,� he said.
Shah said he would be firm in dealing with big political and corporate personalities if they are found to be involved in stashing away black money in foreign banks.
