The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the Calcutta High Court orders directing a CBI investigation into the filing of an application by the West Bengal Central School Service Commission (SSC) in a case related to the teachers' recruitment scam.

A bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice Hima Kohli also stayed the part of the order by which the single-judge bench of the high court had summoned West Bengal Principal Secretary Manish Jain before it Friday about the filing of the fresh application by the West Bengal Central SSC.

"Presently, when I am arguing here, the principal secretary is in the dock before the high court," senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for the state government, told the bench. "There shall be a stay on the high court orders," the CJI said and listed the state government's plea after three weeks.

On November 23, the high court had ordered the CBI probe into filing of a ‘benami application’ and had asked the central agency to investigate at whose behest the plea was filed by the SSC to secure the jobs of staff illegally recruited for state government-sponsored and aided educational institutions by creating extra posts.
