New Delhi: The Supreme Court dismissed the petition filed by an NGO demanding the Apex Court to monitor the ongoing CBI probe into the Commonwealth Games.

The Apex Court maintained that since the CBI probe was going in the right direction, there is no reason for the judiciary to interfere in the investigations.

A division bench comprising Justice RM Lodha and Justice Gyan Sudha Misra on Friday refused to monitor the investigations stating “we do not want to interfere”.

However, the bench stated that the petitioner can move court again if any discrepancy was found in the ongoing investigations.

Arguing for the petitioner, lawyer Atulesh Kumar said the CBI was not conducting the probe in a right manner.

“The CBI is holding investigations only against selected people and is not touching big politicians or beneficiary companies,” Kumar argued.

Citing the CAG and Shunglu Committee report on CWG, petitioner informed the court that big names were not being interrogated.

"For instance, the Delhi Chief Minister had a direct and active role in the decision making process of upgrading street lighting of the city, which led to avoidable extra expenditure of Rs 31.07 crore, but the CBI never investigated this matter," the petitioner said.

Earlier, Dikshit had rejected accusations against her and the state government officials of irregularities during the Games.
