The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed the plea of an estranged wife of a Naval officer seeking a CBI probe into her FIR alleging that besides her husband, four other Navy officers and spouse of one of them indulged in wife-swapping.

A bench comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justices R Banumathi and U U Lalit asked the Director General of Kerala Police to set up an SIT headed by a police officer not below the rank of a DIG and conclude the probe in the 2013 FIR “preferably” within three months.

Rejecting the plea for CBI probe, the verdict, penned by Justice Banumathi said, “It is well settled that the extraordinary power of the constitutional courts in directing CBI to conduct investigation in a case must be exercised rarely in exceptional circumstances, especially, when there is lack of confidence in the investigating agency or in the national interest and for doing complete justice in the matter.”
