Who gave you the visitors' logbook details of CBI director #Ranjit Sinha? SC asks #Bhushan

Supreme Court orders disclosure of the whistleblower's name who leaked the controversial visitors' logbook at CBI director Ranjit Sinha's house in sealed envelope from advocate Prashant Bhushan.
Bhushan had submitted that some unknown persons had turned up at his residence and had given him the documents without revealing their identities.

In his affidavit submitted to SC CBI director Ranjit Sinha has said 90 percent of entries in the register are forged, some entries may be genuine.
During the last hearing, the bench had taken serious objection to Sinha's reluctance to file an affidavit on merits of the allegations and had directed him to file his response on a plea for a direction to the Centre to take steps for his removal and for ordering an SIT probe against him for allegedly abusing his authority.
The bench had taken on record a register of entry list/ guest list at the CBI director's residence which was handed over by advocate Prashant Bhushan in a sealed envelope.
Bhushan is the counsel for NGO, Centre for Public Interest Litigation which has alleged that several accused and officials of accused companies in the 2G scam and other cases have been frequent visitors to Sinha's residence.
