SC to hear plea over CBI report closing disproportionate assets probe against Mulayam, Akhilesh

The Supreme Court said on Monday it will hear the submissions on whether the petitioner can be given the copy of a CBI report on closure of its preliminary enquiry into allegations of amassing disproportionate assets against former Uttar Pradesh Chief Ministers Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son Akhilesh Yadav.

The CBI had told the apex court in 2019 that since “no prima facie evidence” of commission of a cognisable offence was found against Mulayam and his two sons- Akhilesh and Prateek- the Preliminary Enquiry (PE) was not converted into a criminal case/FIR, and as such, no enquiry was conducted in the matter after August 7, 2013.A bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice P S Narasimha took note of Mulayam Singh Yadav’s death and that the CBI has decided not to proceed to register a criminal case against him.

“We will keep it for hearing on another date because he (petitioner Vishwanath Chaturvedi) has got a point that he be given a copy of the CBI’s report,” said the bench and fixed the plea for hearing after winter break in January next year.

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Mulayam Singh Yadav and his family members, said the CBI closed the PE after finding there was nothing to proceed with the registration of a regular case.

Mulayam Singh Yadav, 82, the founder of the Samajwadi Party, died on October 10 this year at a hospital in Gurugram after prolonged illness.
