FILE PIC: PTI
The Supreme Court today convicted and punished the  then acting CBI Director M Nageswara Rao and agency's legal advisor S Bhasuram by imposing a fine of Rs 1 lakh each and sentenced them to sit in the courtroom till the rising of the court for committing contempt of its orders. The apex court held them guilty of its contempt for willfully disobeying its order by transferring CBI Joint Director A K Sharma, who was probing the Bihar shelter home sexual assault cases, as Additional director general of CRPF on January 17.

A bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said that  it is a case where contempt has been committed by both, the then acting CBI Director, M N Rao, and the Director, prosecution.

Before passing the order, the bench told Rao and Bhasuram since they have been held guilty of contempt of court , the unconditional and unqualified apology tendered by them cannot be accepted.
