SC notices to Rao, Tewary
NEW DELHI, July 17 (PTI) The Supreme Court today issued notices to former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao and former Minister K.K. Tewary on a CBI petition challenging their discharge from the St Kitts forgery case. Appearing for the CBI, Solicitor-General Harish Salve argued that the designated court as well as the Delhi High Court erred in discharging Rao and Tewary even when they upheld the framing of charges against self-styled godman Chandraswami and his aide Kailash Nath Aggarwal, alias Mamaji in the case.
