Ex-CBI Interim Chief Nageswara Rao Held Guilty of Contempt in Supreme Court, Fined Rs 1 Lakh, Stands in a Corner of the Court as Punishment

Ex-CBI Interim Chief Nageswara Rao Held Guilty of Contempt in Supreme Court, Fined Rs 1 Lakh, Stands in a Corner of the Court as Punishment

New Delhi: In a significant development, the Supreme Court on Tuesday held former interim chief of the CBI M Nageshwar Rao guilty of contempt and sentenced him to confinement in the courtroom till the rising of the court.

The bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi also imposed penalty of Rs 1 lakh on Rao and gave him a week to deposit it.

Additional legal advisor Bhasuran S was also held guilty of contempt and punished in the same manner.

"You both go and sit in one corner of the court till we rise," Justice Gogoi told Rao and Bhasuran.

The officers have been held guilty over transfer of the senior most investigating officer of the Muzaffarpur shelter home sexual abuse cases.

The bench has also rejected Rao's defence that it was not an instance of wilful disobedience on his part but an error of judgement.

Attorney General KK Venugopal, appearing for the CBI director in the case, also requested the bench to accept the unconditional apology tendered by Rao and Bhasuran and let them off with a stern warning.

On February 7, a bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi had come down heavily on Rao as well as the in-charge of the Director of Prosecution in transferring Sharma despite there being two categorical orders by the apex court prohibiting the transfer of Sharma without the court’s permission.
