Mayawati gets reprieve in Taj corridor case
October 10, 2007 12:09 IST
The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed an application challenging the order of Uttar Pradesh Governor T V Rajeshwar refusing sanction for the prosecution of state Chief Minister Mayawati in the Taj Corridor case.
A bench comprising Justice S B Sinha, Justice S H Kapadia and Justice D K Jain dismissed the application filed by amicus curiae Krishan Mahajan, challenging the order of the governor.
The amicus, in his application, had contended that the order of the governor violated the order of the Supreme Court. The apex court had earlier ordered that the Bahujan Samaj Party supremo be probed in connection to the Rs 175-crore scandal.
