High Court reserves public interest ruling to wait for probe

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court yesterday reserved its order on a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking a probe by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) into the alleged disproportionate assets of Mumbai Regional Congress Committee (MRCC) president Kripashankar Singh.

A division bench of the High Court, which has been hearing a PIL filed by social activist Sanjay Tiwari for over one-and-a-half years now, reserved its ruling for 10 days.

The High Court bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Roshan Dalvi asked all the parties in the case to make their written submissions to the court within next eight days.

In his petition filed before the high court in March 2010, Tiwari had sought the formation of a SIT to probe the alleged disproportionate assets of Singh.

In the petition, Tiwari, among other things, alleged that Singh, a former minister of State for Home in Maharashtra, had amassed huge wealth over the years and was closely linked to former chief minister of Jharkhand Madhu Koda, the kingpin in the much-discussed multi-million rupee hawala scam.

Tiwari told the court that diaries recovered by some investigating agencies had revealed that Singh had allegedly received large sums of money from Koda.
