New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay Delhi HC order allowing Anti-Corruption Bureau of Delhi to take action against officials in corruption cases. A bench of Justices AK Sikri and UU Lalit, however clarified that observation made by the high court on MHA notification of May 21 was tentative in nature and it would not be binding.
It said that the high court can decide constitutional validity of May 21 notification without being influenced by the controversial observations. AAP govt has already filed petition in HC against the notification and is to be taken up for hearing today. The apex court issued notice to Arvind Kejriwal govt on Centre petition and asked it to file response within three weeks.
The court also said that dispute arising out of power tussle between Delhi govt and Centre should be decided by the Supreme Court and asked the AAP government to take a decision whether it wants the case to decided in Supreme Court or Delhi high court
