Supreme Court Refused to Entertain a Plea against the Alleged Misuse of Power by the Central Investigation Agencies

The Supreme Court (SC) refused to entertain a petition, by 14 political parties, against the misuse of powers, to investigation and arrest, by the Central Investigation Agencies like CBI, ED etc., at the behest of Central Government. The Petitioners had sought application of ‘triple test’ with regards to arrest and remand. The SC refrained itself from issuing guidelines stating that “laying down general guidelines de hors the facts of the case cannot be done. If an individual comes to us, then the law can be laid down as highest court of the country.
