The Delhi High Court will hear on September 29 (Thursday) bail pleas filed by former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh's lawyer, Anand Daga and Sub Inspector Abhishek Tiwari in connection with the allegations of leaking sensitive documents in the ongoing investigation against former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, thereby subverting investigation.

Justice Yogesh Khanna adjourned the matter due to heavy board. He had sought response of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on the bail pleas earlier this month.

CBI had arrested Daga and Tiwari from Mumbai and Delhi respectively. After being produced before a Magistrate's Court in Mumbai, transit remand was given for Daga thereby directing his production before a Delhi Court.

Accordingly, Daga and Tiwari were both produced before the Special CBI Judge of the Rouse Avenue Court. Their bail application was rejected by Special CBI Judge Vimal Kumar Yadav thereafter.

The FIR was registered against Daga, Tiwari and unknown others alleging that they entered into a criminal conspiracy for the purpose of disclosing the case sensitive and confidential documents to Anand Daga in lieu of undue advantage and illegal gratification.

The said FIR has been registered under sec. 120B of IPC and sec. 7 and 8 of Prevention of Corruption Act.

In the petition filed by SI Abhishek Tiwari through Advocates Meenesh Dubey and Abdhesh Chaudhary, it has been stated that FIR has been registered against him on the basis of surmises and conjectures and that he has been entangled in the matter because of a "conspiracy of victimization hatched by some seniors, who always had an eye on his integrity, honesty and uprightness" in performing his duty as an Investigator for CBI.

"Basically, the present case is a rivalry between the senior officers, wherein the Petitioner has been made a scape-goat for obvious reasons that the being lower in rank did not toe with the whims and fancies of certain senior officers relating to the manner of Investigation," the plea reads.
