SC issues notice to police officials in ISRO spy case


New Delhi: The apex court has agreed to hear a plea of former ISRO scientist S Nambinarayanan who has sought criminal prosecution against the police officials who had falsely implicated him in the ISRO spy case and has issued notice to the police officials and has sought a response from them within eight weeks.

The Supreme Court was approached by the scientist after the Kerala High Court stayed the proceedings against the erring police officials.

The retired ISRO scientist and former project head of India’s cryogenic rocket engine project was wrongly accused in the ISRO spy case.
