The way CBI is behaving in this case, its becoming more and more evident that everybody is somewhere involved in the scam! So far court is pushing hard.. i hope it continues and we see some progress there. Its been close to 3 months, CBI is handling the case and nothing substantial has been done! They even shut Aarushi case.. shame on them.

is it make a sense to raid the houses of VIP peoples involved in this scam after so many, they have got enough time to destroy evidence and to save themselves

The case registered is Section 420. Those of petty crimes.
CBI, it seems has taken up a minor part of the big crime and is fooling around as if it is doing a damn big investigation.
RTI should be there for CBI also which shall enable one to know the nature of the investigation.
