Tehelka wants 'just and fair' investigation into expose
October 05, 2004 01:02 IST
Seeking a 'just and fair' probe into the expose on defence deals, Tehelka CEO Tarun Tejpal on Monday reacted cautiously to the Centre's decision to scrap the Justice Phukan Commission inquiring into bribery allegations and entrust the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation.
However, he was severe in his criticism of the commission.
Tehelka had participated in the proceedings of the commission for 19 months, when Justice K Venkataswami was heading it, till he resigned under controversial circumstances.
"Only time can tell whether the probe (by CBI) will be just and fair," Tejpal said.
