The much-discussed and long-awaited Cabinet reshuffle undertaken by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today turned out to be a disappointing affair.

A Bench comprising Justices B Sudershan Reddy and SS Nijjar asked Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium that the investigations being conducted in the wake of PILs filed in the SC on the issue should go beyond mere recovery of the tax that had been evaded.
