Relieved of disproportionate assets case! Mayawati

The Supreme Court today quashed a nine-year-long disproportionate assets case against BSP Chief and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati. The apex court also pulled up the CBI for initiating the probe against her without specific directions from it.

The Court said that the method adopted by the CBI was unwarranted and the agency proceeded against her without properly understanding its orders passed in the Taj Corridor scam.

A Bench headed by Justice P Sathasivam clarified that the Supreme Court order pertained to initiating probe against state government officials in the scam and there was no such direction to lodge another FIR exclusively against Mayawati for allegedly amassing assets disproportionate to her known sources of income.
