New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday asked the Delhi Commissioner of Police to report on the action taken over an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Professor SK Dubey’s complaint of being threatened by an Enforcement Directorate (ED) official.

The Apex Court directed the Police Commissioner to submit the report on next Friday.

IIT Professor Dubey, who filed an appeal in the SC on Friday accusing ED Director Arun Mathur of threatening him, said that he had registered a complaint with the Delhi police in this connection.

Dubey was allegedly threatened by ED Director for writing a letter to the Prime Minister in which he had questioned the credentials of ED chief Arun Mathur, who is supervising the investigations in the black money case.

The Supreme Court bench of Justice B Sudarshan Reddy and Justice SS Nijjar directed the Police Commissioner to file an affidavit stating what action has been taken on the complaint.

The bench said it would like to know what action has been taken by the Delhi Police Commissioner on Dubey's complaint.

The court also took into consideration the affidavit filed by Jasbir Singh and sought an explanation from ED. Jasbir in his affidavit had alleged that Mathur and his two associates-Prabha Kant and S K Sahni-enjoyed hospitality of private firms which were under the probe of the ED.

The court asked the Union government why a special investigation team could not be constituted to probe black money and Hasan Ali Khan.

The bench said on the next date of hearing it will also like to seek a specific response from the ED about its investigation into the source of money deposited in foreign banks.

Though Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium said the issue of Hasan Ali’s fake passport is serious and stated the CBI can probe into the matter.

Notably, eminent jurist Ram Jethmalani through a petition has appealed the Apex Court bring back the black money.
