As per news report of NDTV, The CBI had sought to set aside a special judge's March 5 order that directed the agency to allow inspection of documents kept in the "malkhana" by the accused or their counsel. "The petition is dismissed," said Justice Mukta Gupta. The investigating agency had opposed the inspection of documents on the grounds that the probe in the INX media case, in which the Chidambarams are accused, is still ongoing, and that it may result in evidence tampering. In its plea before the high court, the CBI had said that the INX Media case involved high level of corruption with wide ramifications on society, and while the accused have a right to a fair trial, the collective interest of the society could not be impinged.
