Story highlights

Following the apex court`s direction, a preliminary enquiry was instituted into the Samajwadi Party patriarch`s alleged disproportionate assets. 

The Supreme Court on Friday directed the CBI to file its response within four weeks on a fresh plea filed by Cong activist in disproportionate assets (DA) case against Mulayam Singh Yadav. 

Following the apex court`s direction, a preliminary enquiry was instituted into the Samajwadi Party patriarch`s alleged disproportionate assets. 

The enquiry was closed in 2013. 

The Solicitor General told the court that the agency closed the preliminary inquiry in 2013 as it did not find any conclusive evidence against Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son Akhilesh.

The SC asked the CBI to file a detailed response in the DA case against Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son. The next hearing in the matter will come up in July. The elections will already be over then. 

Mulayam Singh Yadav had complained to the Supreme Court that the petition filed on election-eve was politically motivated.
