The Supreme Court has ordered a CBI probe against former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa for his alleged role in the iron ore mining scam, reports said.
The apex court has asked the CBI to use environment panel Central Empowered Committee’s report for registration of preliminary inquiry report against Yeddyurappa. The CEC, in its report, had recommended a probe by an independent agency into various matters related to illegal mining in the state.
The SC has asked the CBI to submit its report by Aug 3. Also, the top court said all other proceedings related to this case in any other court will remain stayed until further notice.
