An application has been filed in the Supreme Court for the hearing of a pornographic CD case in Chhattisgarh outside the state. Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel is also an accused in the case. The Supreme Court has now made the Chhattisgarh government a party in this case.
The Supreme Court has allowed the Chhattisgarh government to be a partner in the alleged sex CD case in Chhattisgarh. In this case, the hearing of the application of the Central Investigation Agency in the Supreme Court has been postponed. The next hearing will be in March. Explain that the CBI has demanded that the case be transferred out of Chhattisgarh. According to the agency, the accused was an adviser to the chief minister. Incumbent CM Bhupesh Baghel is also accused of conspiracy in the case.
Let us know that the Central Investigation Agency had filed an application in the Supreme Court for the hearing of the pornographic CD case in Chhattisgarh outside the state. The then Congress president and current chief minister Bhupesh Baghel has also been charged in the case.
What’s the matter
In 2017, a pornographic CD in Chhattisgarh gradually went viral as described by one of the then state ministers. An alleged sex tape went viral on October 27, 2017, revealing the name of a minister in the then Raman government. Journalist Binod Verma was later arrested from Delhi in the case. The BJP has accused Congress leaders of distributing alleged sex CDs. An FIR was lodged in the CD scandal against accused Vinod Verma as well as Bhupesh Baghel in Raipur.
The then government handed over the entire case to the CBI. The CBI has registered a case against political adviser to the chief minister Binod Verma, businessmen Vijay Bhatia, Kailash Murarka and Rinku Khanuja. For this reason, the CBI wants a hearing in the case outside Chhattisgarh.
The CBI had alleged that the witnesses were threatened
During the hearing in the Supreme Court, the CBI argued in favor of his application that some witnesses were being influenced. Bureau lawyers told the court that some of the witnesses in the case were from Delhi, some from Mumbai and some from other cities. At the same time, former BJP leader Kailash Muraraka, co-accused in the case, said that many allegations have been made against the state government by the CBI. For this reason, the government should also be included in this application as a party.
Earlier in 2019, the Supreme Court had adjourned the ongoing hearing of the alleged sex CD scandal against Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel. With this, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel wanted to know why the matter would not be sent to another state for hearing. The CBI has told the Supreme Court that witnesses in the case are being threatened and are being implicated in other cases.
