Supreme Court admits petition seeking FIR against Mayawati in assets case
The top court said that it will not pass any immediate order but agreed to hear the case. The government had informed the court that there is no grounds to file new FIR against the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister.
Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati may have to face a fresh case in connection with her illegal wealth as the Supreme Court today agreed to hear a petition seeking registration of a new FIR against her.
Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi who was representating the Centre/CBI today told the Supreme Court that the issues of donations to Mayawati had been heard by Income Tax department and she had been given clean chit in each case.
Mayawati’s lawyer told the court that the petitioner Kamlesh Verma is an ex-BSP member and the case is nothing but political vendetta.
