[YT]jNvLyHUx2Ig[/YT] TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami debates the issue of Supreme Court slamming Govt for failing to act against black money with Mani Shankar Aiyar, Senior Leader Congress; Mahesh Jethmalani, Senior Lawyer and Leader, BJP and M R Venkatesh, Chartered Accountant. Lambasting the Centre for not having the "will power" to act against black money hoarders, the Supreme Court today asked why stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan and others were not subjected to custodial interrogation despite the probe agencies possessing sufficient material. "What the hell is going on in this country," the court asked, while virtually snubbing Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium when he tried to make certain submissions. The court also said the alleged offenders were a "pampered lot". Expressing strong displeasure at the manner in which Khan and other alleged offenders were given repeated opportunities for adjournments by the Enforcement Directorate, the bench said the authorities were "hoodwinking" everybody and wondered whether the same leniency would have been extended to other petty offenders. The court also ordered that three key ED officials allegedly transferred midway into the probe in a case of alleged foreign exchange violation by Hasan Ali Kh an, the Pune-based businessman, be reinstated forthwith. A bench of justices B Sudershan Reddy and S S Nijjar also indicated that if the government fails to act, it would be compelled to appoint a special officer for supervising the probe against the offenders. The bench granted time till Tuesday to the Centre to file its response failing which it said the court would be constrained to pass necessary orders. Subramanium's repeated efforts to convince the court about the goverment's efforts to take action against the offenders proved futile as the bench repeatedly querie dhim as to why no custodial interrogation had so far taken place. Khan, who is alleged to have stashed around USD 8 billion in foreign banks, had been earlier served a notice for a tax demand for about Rs 50,000 crore in 2009. "There are instances when minor offenders are shot down for violating Section 144 CrPC (unlawful assembly), but you don't take any action against these people. We are very sorry. All these people are now free," the bench remarked voicing its dismay. The apex court on February 10, while hearing a PIL by noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani and some former bureaucrats for recovery of black money stashed by Indians had asked the government to ensure that Khan does not leave the country. The court gave vent to its fury after senior counsel Anil Divan appearing for Jethmalani submitted that the ED was not taking steps to interrogate Khan and others, but was instead giving them repeated adjournments.
