The Central Empowered Committee (CEC) appointed by Supreme Court for investigating the case of illegal mining in Karnataka has recommended to the apex Court that there is a need of Central Investigation Bureau (CBI) probe against close relatives of former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa.
The Supreme Court has appointed a CEC for submit a report before the court in this regard.
According to CEC recommendation, the payment done by a mining company to two firms are owned by close relatives of Yedyurappa.
The committee, in its recommendation to the forest bench headed by Chief Justice S.H. Kapadia, also sought investigation into whether there was any link between these payments and the grant of mining lease to one person named, Praveen Chandra, during Yeddyurappa's tenure.
CEC has also suggested that the CBI should investigate in detail whether Yeddyurappa had allegedly misused his office as being Chief Minister, as prima facie massive illegalities seemed to have taken place, including serious violation of rules to de-notify agricultural land, allowing the BJP leader's relatives to make a huge windfall when they resold de-notified land at an enormous profit.
It is also recommended that the CBI investigate the link between Mr Yeddyurappa allegedly favouring some companies in mining deals.
