Karnataka rules out CBI probe into mining scam

July 13, 2010 16:45 IST

The Karnataka Government on Tuesday ruled out a CBI probe into the illegal iron ore mining and export scam, even as the stand-off with the Opposition showed no signs of resolution.

"We will not accept (not order a probe)," state Home Minister V S Acharya said in the Legislative Council.

He sought to remind the Opposition what the then Home Minister M Mallikarjuna Kharge (currently Union Labour and Employment Minister) commented about the CBI (while rejecting the Opposition demand for the investigating agency's probe when the NDA was in power).

The Opposition Congress and JDS have repeatedly said they would continue their dharna till the Government ordered a CBI probe into the alleged scam.
