NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has sought the status report of the disproportionate case held against Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav, in 2007. The case was filed a decade ago against the SP leaders after allegations that Mulayam Singh Yadav misused his power and post to gain large amounts of wealth.
"We want to know what has happened to this case? There is a status report of 2007. What has happened? We would like to know whether the case is registered?" the top court asked the Central Bureau of Investigation.
"Timing is not relevant. We want to know what happened," Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, who heads the bench told senior Yadav's lawyer who alleged the petition was based on the upcoming general election.
