    D. The second set of document is very important

    The CBI's notice has gained importance because the agency has devoted time to scrutinizing the second set of documents, which were ordered to be retained by a Delhi Special Court. The CBI could be looking for clues in these documents that could link the NRI brothers to another stream of payment running into crores of rupees. This suggests that the second set of documents holds crucial evidence in the payoffs case, making the CBI's notice significant.

    • E.

    Correct Answer
    A. It wants to nab the culprit
    Explanation
    The CBI is looking for "clues" in order to nab the culprit. The agency has issued notices to the NRI brothers based in London and Geneva to join the probe into the payoffs case. While the brothers have denied any involvement in the gun deal and have blocked the transfer of Swiss Bank documents to India, the CBI believes that there may be clues in the second set of Swiss documents that could link the brothers to a stream of payments. By finding these clues, the CBI hopes to gather evidence that will help them catch the person responsible for the payoffs.
