Misuse of probe agencies will enable corrupt to evade law: Congresstext_fields
New Delhi: The "relentless misuse" of agencies against political opponents, according to Congress, undermines their credibility and provides an avenue for the corrupt to escape punishment.
The honest end up paying the price in such proceedings, said Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera, shortly after CBI raids were carried out at the residence of Delhi's deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, PTI reported.
"The flip side to relentless misuse of agencies against political rivals is that even legitimate, rightful actions of agencies come under a cloud of suspicion. In the process, the corrupt get away hiding behind the 'misuse' argument and the honest end up paying the price," Khera said on Twitter.
The CBI on Friday carried out searches at the residences of Manish Sisodia and IAS officer Arava Gopi Krishna and 19 other locations after registering an FIR in connection with the Delhi excise policy case.
