CBI FILES DETAILED REPORT BEFORE SC ON SUBBAS CITIZENSHIP

New Delhi, December 11: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Monday submitted its probe report to the Supreme Court on the citizenship issue of Congress parliamentarian from Assam Mani Kumar Subba after dilly-dallying on the matter for nearly a year.
The CBI submitted its report in a sealed cover to the bench of Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justice R.V. Raveendran. The bench will decide later whether to make the report public.
The CBI had begun the probe into the citizenship of the Assam lottery baron on the directions of the apex court. The court had issued the direction, while adjudicating a public interest lawsuit questioning Subba's citizenship.
The petition had been filed by Noida resident Birendra Nath Singh, who had alleged that the Lok Sabha MP from Tezpur was a Nepalese citizen and had come to India after a murder case was registered against him there in the early 1970s.
Subba's counsel Abhishek Manu Singhvi contended before the bench that the MP has been in politics for years and such allegations have been made against him on several occasions without any basis.
On earlier hearings, the apex court had expressed displeasure over the CBI lethargy in probing the matter.
The court had warned it against seeking more time. The bench had also warned the central government and the investigating agency on Jan 19 this year on their inability to provide concrete answer on the MP's citizenship.
Subba had said that he was born in Dadgram village in Darjeeling district of West Bengal and his parents had migrated from Singtam village in Sikkim.
Singh had alleged in his petition that Subba has changed his name from Mani Raj Limbo to Mani Kumar Subba after leaving Nepal.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
