SC to hear Centre Plea against HC Edict on MHA Notice

New Delhi, May 28: The Supreme Court will tomorrow hear the Centre's Special Leave Petition (SLP) challenging the Delhi High Court's order that termed as ‘suspect’ a notification of the Union Home Ministry barring the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) of the Delhi government from acting against MHA officials.

The HC had issued the order while hearing bail application of a Delhi Police constable who was arrested by the ACB on bribery charges. The Home Ministry had maintained that ACB had no jurisdiction over its officials whereas the Delhi government had challenged it.

The Central government's plea also challenges the May 25 HC order that said that the Lieutenant Governor has no power in the posting and transfer of bureaucrats in the Delhi government. The Delhi High Court by its verdict had held erroneous the Central government notification putting all the services under the LG.
