The CBI on Thursday withdrew from a Delhi court its application that had sought permission to further probe the politically sensitive Rs 64-crore Bofors payoff case. The CBI had also filed an appeal in the Supreme Court in February 2, 2018 against the May 31, 2005 verdict of the Delhi high Court discharging all the accused in the case. The top court had on November 2, 2018 dismissed CBI’s appeal in which it had sought condonation of the 13 year delay in filing the appeal against the high court judgment. The supreme court had said that it was not convinced with the grounds of the CBI to condone over 4,500 days’ delay in filing the appeal. Justice R S Sodhi (since retired) of the Delhi High Court had on May 31, 2005 quashed the CBI case in the Bofors pay-off scam.
