The Delhi High Court has issued notices to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on an application seeking contempt proceedings against CBI officers who had "virtually raided" the office of Delhi Forum, a non governmental organisation. The application filed by Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) stated that the raid was an attempt to harass the CPIL for filing a petition against the CBI on its investigations into the Mukta Panna Oilfields deal. By raiding the office of Delhi Forum, the CBI was trying to pressurise the CPIL to withdraw the petition pending in the High Court, alleged the application.
