India Rejuvenation Initiative demands SIT probe into cash for vote scam

JM Lyngdoh along with 13 others moved the Supreme Court on 11 April demanding SIT probe into the cash for vote scam after the WikiLeaks expose. India Rejuvenation Initiative is a non political social organisation working primarily to wipe out corruption from the country. Lyngdoh also wants the court to direct the Centre to set up an independent SIT to probe and complete investigation within six months. The petitioner said a free and fair investigation into the scam was possible only if an independent probe by a Special Investigation Team, or SIT, constituted by the court to investigate the cash for vote scam. Mr Lyngdoh in his petition has also mentioned that investigation has not made any progress since 2009.
