The Supreme Court today dismissed a plea seeking a direction to CBI to register a case against Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for allegedly declaring himself as a British national before company law authorities there.
A bench comprising Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justice Amitava Roy questioned the "authenticity of the document" attached with the PIL and the manner in which the papers were procured.
"Can we start making roving inquiries," the bench asked while turning the petition as "frivolous".
Earlier the apex court had refused urgent hearing on a plea filed by lawyer M L Sharma.
Recently, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has alleged that the Congress Vice President has claimed himself to be a British national before the authorities in connection with incorporation of a firm.(Agencies)
