The CBI had registered a case against Baghel in September last year, then Chhattisgarh Congress president
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today stayed the ongoing criminal trial in the alleged sex CD case involving Chhattisgarh Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Bhupesh Baghel as an accused.
A bench comprising Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer also issued a notice to Baghel on a plea of CBI seeking transfer of the criminal case out of Chhattisgarh on grounds including that the Chief Minister has been allegedly threatening the witnesses in the case.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBI said that two prosecution witnesses have lodged complaints with the probe agency that they have been threatened at the behest of accused of giving statement against the chief minister in the case.
The CBI had registered a case against Baghel in September last year, then Chhattisgarh Congress president on a complaint that he had allegedly tried to frame the then state PWD minister and BJP leader Rajesh Munat in the fake sex CD case.
