A CBI spokesperson said that the matter was put before the Supreme Court seeking its permission to "discuss" the findings of the case with the prosecutors since investigation is almost over in these cases.
According to laid down procedures, the case, before being chargesheeted, is to be vetted by the lawyers who would be representing the CBI in the court. The Supreme Court had on May eight asked the CBI to ensure secrecy and had directed that the probe details be not shared with "any person or authority, including any minister ...law officers, advocates of CBI...”

About the status report, the spokesperson said it was submitted in a sealed cover to the Supreme Court for their perusal. The spokesperson said that besides these things, an affidavit about non-applicability of 6A of Delhi Special Police Establishment Act (DSPE) in court-monitored cases was also reasoned before the Apex court.
Under 6A, the CBI has to seek permission of the competent authority before registering a case or chargesheeting an officer of the government. The CBI also submitted an affidavit about granting autonomy to the agency.
