Sinha, who had to face Supreme Court's ire today which asked him to keep away from the 2G telecom scam probe, said he would not be filing any review petition as the order was from the Bench headed by the Chief Justice.
When asked about naming DIG Santosh Rastogi as a possible 'mole' who leaked the documents to activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan, CBI Director said that he had not named anyone.
"I don't know what are you talking about but I have not named any officer as mole or anything," Sinha told reporters at the agency headquarters here.
Sinha said he was waiting for the Supreme Court order and decide the future course of action on that basis, as the trial was still going on.
With just 12 days left in his retirement, Sinha on Thursday suffered a major blow when the Supreme Court removed him from the 2G scam case, saying the allegations against him of protecting some accused appears to be "prima facie credible".
The apex court, in an unprecedented order, handed over the case to the senior-most officer after Sinha in the 2G scam investigating team.
A bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu, however, refused to pass an elaborate order on the issue saying that it would "tarnish" the "image and reputation" of the premier agency.

The court said it did not want to pass an elaborate order, because it would be against the interest and image of the agency.

"Prima facie the allegations made in the application(by NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation) are credible and required to be accepted," the bench observed.

However, his counsel insisted that the allegations levelled against Sinha of scuttling the 2G probe were "untrue".

The CBI chief's role was criticised by the Apex Court- appointed Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Anand Grover and counsel appearing for CBI, K K Venugopal, also raised questions on Sinha naming a senior IPS officer as mole in the team.

The Apex Court also recalled its earlier order by which it directed the NGO to disclose the name of whistleblower who had provided documents and visitors diary of Sinha's residence.
