Don't unlock Quattrocchi accounts: SC

Onkar Singh in New Delhi | January 16, 2006 14:45 IST

The Supreme Court on Monday issued notices to the Union of India and the Central Bureau of Investigation on a petition filed by Ajay Agarwal regarding unlocking of Ottavio Qattrocchi accounts in Britain.

A three-judge Bench headed by Chief Justice Y K Sabharwal directed that the government should take steps to maintain the status quo and ensure that the frozen accounts are not unlocked.

The court added that if they had been unlocked, the government should ensure that no money is withdrawn from the account.

'It is in the interest of the nation,' the court said.
