Justice S.A. Bobde, heading a two-judge bench, made the announcement and also clarified that no civil or criminal case shall lie against the CoA for any step taken by them in "good faith". This was after the court was told that these official were vulnerable as they carried out instructions of the CEO and CFO of the BCCI.
