Cash For Vote Scam No Progress Made – Supreme Court slams Delhi Police for its indifferent and insensitive attitude towards investigation

Cash for vote scam happened in a year 2008.
On July 22, 2008, three BJP members - Ashok Argal, Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahavir Bhagora - had placed Rs 1 crore cash in Lok Sabha alleging the money was given to them by floor managers of the UPA government to secure their support during the
No-confidence motion after Left parties withdrew their support over the Indo-US nuclear deal.

After that nothing happened in this case also.

Former chief election commissioner (CEC) J.M. Lyngdoh filed a petition in court demanding its directions to the government to take action against politicians involved in the scam which relates the trust vote faced by the UPA government in July 2008.

According to the petition, the incident had occurred on July 22, 2008, neither the Delhi Police Crime Branch which registered an FIR nor the chairman of the Joint Parliamentary Committee had so far taken any tangible step.

The petition demands that Supreme Court should direct the government to set up an independent special investigation team (SIT) to probe the allegations in a speedy manner.

Friday Delhi Police filed status report on the investigation, the Supreme Court said that it was not happy with it and pulled up the police on various grounds.
It also slammed the police for giving only some stories in its status report.

As soon as the matter came up before the Supreme Court, It was surprised to see the contents of Status report.
Bench said that this is not investigation. You are telling a story to the court on the basis of statement made by some people. There is no inference drawn up by you,"

The court expressed concern, saying "Investigation has been done with callousness on the complaint filed by Lok Sabha Secretary."

Callous means insensitive; indifferent; unsympathetic: They have a callous attitude toward the sufferings of others.

Supreme Court ask the Delhi Police
Why Delhi Police had not made even a single custodial interrogation in the case?
Why the investigation was not moving at a pace that it should?

A bench headed by Justice Aftab Alam said that "We are not happy at all with probe done by the Delhi Police. This is not the way to prove the offence of such serious nature,"

In remark bench said that are our investigating agencies so inefficient that after two years no headway has been made in a simple case?

Supreme Court gave 2 weeks of time to Delhi Police to file a fresh status report.

Do you think India needs to legalize the corruption in India?

In this cash for vote scam do you think any one well get arrested or we Indians will know the truth and guilty will be punished?

Delhi Police is for Delhi society.
The Parliament being a national body, the case should be handed over to CRPF.

One Mr.Saxena has been taken in by Delhi Police, yesterday. I wonder why such an action was not taken earlier? Probably the SC order has made the difference.
How long will our institutions not work on their own based on merit? Why do they look for pressure from above to take a step?
Probably the security of job is the answer. If a cop takes a drastic action he may be transferred or suspended.
The situation seems better in western parts of India as far as police action is concerned. This is my opinion.

Yes agree with you, cops fear as cops have to salute those same people.
we need police reforms even SC said that but no one is interested.
