Alld HC orders CBI probe into Yadav Singh case

02_12_2014-02 up-6Lucknow, Jul 16-The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court today ordered a CBI probe against former Noida Authority engineer-in-chief Yadav Singh in connection with his alleged illegal assets. A division bench of Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice S N Shukla recommended for the CBI probe after completing the hearing. The state government had opposed the CBI probe saying that a judicial commission under A N Verma is probing the matter. The court maintained that it had no faith in the one-member Justice AN Verma Commission probing corruption charges against Singh. Observing that the state government should recommend a CBI probe on its own, the court said it was strange that how an engineer had become a 'holy cow' for the entire state machinery. The CBI probe order was given on a PIL of social activist Nutun Thakur, who is the wife of suspended IPS officer Amitabh Thakur.
