KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Friday observed that a CBI probe will be appropriate in the Monson Mavunkal case which involves former DGP, ADGP, and IG. The High Court also questioned the appropriateness of the state police investigating the case involving top police officials. Monson was given police protection as soon as he requested it. Deals have taken place inside and outside the state. Therefore, a CBI probe will be appropriate in the case, the court observed.

The court also directed that the report on the case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the scam should be submitted before December 1. The ED informed the court that it had launched a preliminary investigation into the case. The ED also told the court that it had the power to investigate only matters relating to financial irregularities and that it was appropriate to appoint agencies like the CBI to investigate other matters.

Meanwhile, the state government opposed the question of whether there should be a CBI probe. The state government replied that the police were capable of investigating the case and that the police had the power to investigate various matters, including foreign relations.
