The Rajasthan government's controversial order protecting ministers, lawmakers and government officials from investigations into complaints against them without sanction has been challenged in the Rajasthan high court. 

Senior Lawyer in Rajasthan HC, AK Jain has filed a PIL against the Criminal Laws (Rajasthan Amendment) Ordinance, calling the proposed law "arbitrary and malafide" and against the right to "fair investigation as well as equality".

An ordinance put out last month by the Vasundhara Raje government bars courts from taking up complaints against public servants without the government's approval. 

It also makes it a crime to identify the minister, lawmaker or official against whom a complaint has been filed in the court.
