In a big relief for Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu, the Supreme Court has quashed a plea seeking CBI inquiry into alleged corruption cases against him.
The Supreme Court turned down an interim application filed by Arunachal Justice Forum (AJF) seeking CBI “preliminary inquiry” into allegations of corruption against the Arunachal Pradesh CM.
A writ petition (criminal) was filed in the Supreme Court by the AJF earlier this year against Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu.
The body had levelled several corruption allegations against the Arunachal CM that included undisclosed properties, misappropriation of funds, etc.
A three-judge SC bench comprising chief justice of India (CJI) NV Ramanna, justices AS Bopanna and Hima Kohli heard the matter.
