Maharashtra in grip of CBI fear
The state of Maharashtra, is reeling under heavy fear with the news of CBI regaining its original power to freely registering cases of corruption and frauds in the state. Currently, a record number of cases are pending in the State for the lack of approval by the state.On the other hands, fresh cases too are going to be registered taking the total number of cases registered and investigated very high in the state. But, the state is not fully equipped to handle such a surge in cases, resulting in heavy backlog and pilling of cases in the state.Currently, there are only six courts for CBI in Mumbai as compared to 25 in Delhi. Also, every CBI case is sure to result in a corresponding money laundering case by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and there is only court in Mumbai dealing with the Prevention of Money Laundering (PMLA) cases, in the state.The previous government led by Udhav Thackeray, withdraw the general consent under section 6 of the Delhi Special Police Establishment (DSPE) act – a mandatory legal requirement for CBI to register cases in any state and thus, it was easily possible for CBI courts to dispense justice speedily, with limited number of cases, at our disposal.But now the situation is far more grim, with the sudden spurt in number of cases but the limited numbers of courts, it is certainly going to take more time in deciding the matter, leading to total judicial chaos in the state.
