New Delhi: CBI Director Ranjit Sinha on Thursday accepted that the Supreme Court's observation about the country's premier investigating agency was quite apt.

Coalgate: SC calls CBI a caged parrot
Asked by reporters about his views on the Apex Court's remark, Sinha said, "Whatever Supreme Court said is correct."

On Wednesday, the Apex Court had examined a nine-page affidavit filed by Ranjit Sinha alleging that Law Minister Ashwani Kumar, officials of PMO and Coal Ministry vetted the investigating agency’s status report on coal scam probe. Expressing concern over the Centre’s interference into CBI probe, the Apex Court had said, “CBI has become a caged parrot speaking in master’s voice.”

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said that the Apex Court had just made a comment and it was not an order. "It is a comment by the court and not an order. If it was a written order, then we would have reacted to it. The government has done nothing wrong. The investigation has not been affected and there was no intervention in the investigation," he said.
