The Apex Court bench of Justice H L  Dattu permitted Special Public Prosecutor Anand Grover to file these reports with the court's registry after he informed that they would be furnished in a sealed cover.

The court in its earlier hearing had asked Grover, who is heading the prosecution team in the special CBI court that is trying the 2G case, to assist in ascertaining Sinha's role in the case and whether the identity of the whistleblower could be made public.

Earlier, In his affidavit filed before the Supreme Court in response to the plea of Bhushan that Sinha be removed from the 2G scam probe in the wake of his allegations that he met accused and officials of accused companies at his residence, the agency chief said it is not open to the lawyer to argue his case without disclosing the source from which he got the details of the visitors mentioned in their affidavit.
He had filed this affidavit  in response to plea of Bhushan, counsel for an NGO, Centre for Public Interest Litigation, seeking his removal from 2G spectrum scam probe.

"In the instant case, there is no averment in the affidavit whatsoever to indicate that the whistle blower is under any kind of threat from anybody so as to claim immunity and non-disclosure of his name," the CBI Director claimed.


The Centre for Public Interest Litigation, a non-government organisation that claimed it was in receipt of the visitor's book at Sinha's residence, had alleged that he had been meeting the accused in 2G case and interfering to derail the probe and the trial.

The matter will come up for hearing Thursday.
