`Option to move Supreme Court in Bofors case open'

By Our Special Correspondent

PATNA, FEB. 5. The Central Bureau of Investigation director, U.S. Mishra, today said no decision had been taken as yet about challenging the Delhi High Court order quashing the charges that the Hinduja brothers had bribed, among others, the former Prime Minister, the late Rajiv Gandhi.

Mr. Mishra, who is on a two-day visit to the State to take stock of the investigation into the Satyendra Dubey murder case, said the option was still open to the CBI to approach the Supreme Court in the Bofors case. A decision would be taken after obtaining legal opinion and scrutinising the judgment. He parried questions on whether the verdict had tarnished the CBI's image, saying he could not comment without examining the order as it happened to be a very important case. He had 60 days to go through the judgment and it was necessary to examine the basis of the court's findings before deciding on challenging it in the apex court.

Mr. Mishra ruled out the possibility of changing the team investigating the murder of Dubey, the National Highways Authority of India engineer, following the death in mysterious circumstances of the two youths interrogated by it.

To a question, Mr. Mishra said the investigating team would also look into the issues of corruption and misdeeds Dubey had raised in his letter to the Prime Minister's Office. An FIR in this connection was likely to be filed soon.
