Supreme Court on Wednesday made it clear that the documents seized during the raids of Sahara and Birla business houses had no evidentiary value and rejected the plea for a court-monitored SIT probe into bribery allegations against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

A new bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Amitava Roy noted that the case based on random materials like loose sheets, papers, e-mail print outs is merit less as they are inadmissible materials having no evidentary value under the law to order registration of FIR and investigation. 

The new bench was constituted as Prashant Bhushan, lawyer for the Common Cause, had sought recusal of the then Chief Justice of India-designate, Justice J S Khehar, on the ground that his file for elevation for CJI was pending with the executive headed by the Prime Minister. As a result, many consider it would be a major setback to the Congress in general and other Opposition parties in particular, as they determined to use it as strong ‘tool’ against the Prime Minister and his BJP in next month polls to five states. On the other hand, the BJP looks jubilant and feels greatly relieved as there was no need for them to give any explanations to people in their election campaigns.
