CBI opposes Government on Chidambaram's role in 2G scam

The CBI on Tuesday objected to the Central Government telling the Supreme Court that it will examine the documents given by the Janata Party Chief Subramanian Swamy indicating that the then Finance Minister P. Chidambaram was involved in the 2G scam.
Swamy is seeking a CBI probe against Chidambaram alleging that the spectrum price was not decided by jailed former communications minister.
An Apex Court bench of justices GS Singhvi and Justice AK Ganguly was told that the 15 documents presented by Swamy were part of the 500 documents in a file that have already been persued by the CBI and the report was already with the special court trying the 2G Scam case.
Senior Counsel KK Venugopal, appearing for the probe agency, took exception to the Central Government telling the apex court that the new documents filed for the first time before this court will naturally be studied and will be considered naturally by the CBI as usual and may be covered in the next status report.
Venugopal said that they are autonomous and independent of government and nobody can influence them in any manner.
