The Supreme Court has listed for pronouncement of judgment on Friday on BSP chief Mayawati's plea, challenging the CBI probe in an alleged disproportionate assets case against her.
Mayawati had in May 2008 sought quashing of criminal proceedings against her in the DA case, lodged by the CBI over eight years ago. She alleged it was an act of political vendetta against her. A bench headed by Justice P Sathasivam had reserved its judgment on May 1.
Mayawati had said the bench should direct the CBI to consider the aspect of order passed by the Income Tax Tribunal holding that her income was genuine and the order had also been upheld by the Delhi High Court. The CBI countered there was "ample evidence" to show she had amassed wealth disproportionate to her known sources of income.
Mayawati claimed she received the money was donations from party workers.
Questioning Mayawati's assets, the CBI had said her declared assets of Rs one crore in 2003 had gone up to Rs 50 crore in 2007.
The CBI, in its last affidavit filed on September 13, 2011, had alleged there was a "criminal nexus" between Mayawati and her relatives and the disproportionate assets case against her cannot be closed on the basis of conclusions arrived at by the Income Tax Department.
