Compensation should be paid to Nambi Narayanan, says SC

NEW DELHI July 11: The Supreme Court vocally stated that compensation should be paid to former scientist Nambi Narayanan in the ISRO spy case.  A scientist, who was in a high post was trapped and arrested in the case.
 
He is entitled for the compensation, said a bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra while considering a plea of the scientist seeking action against Siby Mathews, K K Joshua and S Vijayan for falsely implicating him in the case.
 
When the court asked who should pay the compensation, the CBI said that it is not our responsibility. In the meantime, the CBI requested the court to probe the conspiracy behind the harassment towards the scientist while in custody.
 
The CBI said they are ready for a probe monitored by the court. The court postponed pronouncing the verdict in the case.
 
Siby Mathews, K K Joshua and S Vijayan had asserted that he was arrested for preventing him leaving the country and only legal action was taken.
