Now CBI director says that Coal scam report is altered according to the wishes of UPA Govt. Question arises only that how many other reports would be altered by CBI according to the wishes of government due to that so many culprit could be acquitted or innocent could be hanged. CBI director today said the CBI has given full details about the original draft and the “amended draft” of the status report including changes that have been brought about and on whose instructions.
Anti-Sikh riots happened in 1984 and the case against Kumar was registered in 2005 on a recommendation by Justice G T Nanavati Commission. CBI had filed two charge sheets against him and the other accused in January 2010.
The trial court had in May 2010 framed charges against Kumar and the five others under Sections 302 (murder), 395 (dacoity), 427 (mischief to cause damage to property), 153-A (promoting enmity between different communities), 120B (criminal conspiracy) and other provisions of the IPC.
Following is the chronology of events:
Oct 31, 1984: Indira Gandhi shot dead by her two body guards at her residence.

TOI reported today on April 30, 2013: Under fire from the over sharing the probe report with the political executive, CBI director today maintained that the agency was not an “autonomous organisation” and that he had not shown it (report) to any outsider but to the of the country.
“I am a part of the government. I am not an autonomous body. I have not shown it to any outside person. I have shown it to the law minister of the country. I will inform the Supreme Court about any situation arising out of that. The decision o CBIf Supreme Court will be acceptable,” he told reporters.
He was asked about the observations of the apex court that sharing of information with the government about the probe into the scam has “shaken the entire process” and CBI need not take instructions from “political masters” on their probe.
Sinha, in an earlier interaction with reporters during the day admitted that changes were made in the draft report and he gave the full details to the Supreme Court.
Asked by reporters about the contents of the status report submitted to the apex court on Tuesday, Sinha said the agency has given full details about the original draft and the “amended draft” of the status report including changes that have been brought about and on whose instructions.
To a question whether he takes moral responsibility for the embarrassing position arising out of episode, Sinha said, “I don’t think there has been any embarrassment. I think that the honourable Supreme Court has made some observations. We will reply to all the queries that they had raised. I am sure that Supreme Court will take a very reasonable view about the state of affairs.”
