New Delhi: The Supreme Court Wednesday left it to the Parliament to decide the contents of the proposed law for making CBI autonomous and said it would review after a decision is taken.

A bench headed by Justice R M Lodha expressed satisfaction that Centre has taken steps for bringing amendment in law for making the agency autonomous and insulate it from extraneous influences.

"There is some positive beginning," the bench said.

"We can wait for the exercise to be done. When the government comes out with amendment in Parliament then there would be flow of opinion from its members. Let the Parliament debate on it and then we will look whether it fulfils the objective of making CBI autonomous. We should wait a little," the bench said.
