Data Centre case: SC rejects Nandakumar’s review petition

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday rejected a review petition filed by T.G Nandakumar, a middleman, challenging the order for a CBI investigation into the Data Centre case.

A Bench of Justice H.L. Dattu dismissed the review petition stating that there was no ground for the arguments of T G Nandakumar. Nandakumar, in his reviews petition, argued that the CBI probe was ordered without considering the criterion of the constitutional bench.

The State government November 1 had issued a notification to hand over the probe into the Data Centre case to the Central Bureau of Investigation. The probe, which was handled by the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau, was handed over to the CBI as per Section 6 of Delhi Special Police Act (1946).

The Data Centre, associated with state-owned State Data Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), was handed over to Reliance Communications in 2009.

The issue ignited a row ever since the Data Centre, maintaining sensitive data on the State, was transferred to Reliance, terming it a big security risk.
