Supreme Court questions CVC's appointment

By The Assam Tribune

New Delhi, Nov 22 (PTI): Government today placed the file relating to the appointment of PJ Thomas as the Central Vigilance Commissioner in the Supreme Court, which questioned as to how he would function in the post in view of a pending criminal case against him.

"Without looking into the file, we are concerned that if a person is an accused in a criminal case how will he function as CVC," a bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia observed after Attorney General GE Vahanvati placed the file in a sealed cover.

The bench said it will go through the file and posted the matter after two weeks.

"We will sit together and go through the file," the bench also comprising Justices KS Radhakrishnan and Swatanter Kumar said.
