CBI today arrested Independent MLA from Karwar, Satish Sail, owner of Mallikarjuna Shipping Corporation, in a case relating to alleged illegal export of iron ore from Belikeri port in Karnataka.

"Sail was summoned to the CBI office here for interrogation and arrested later," a CBI official told PTI.

He is the second MLA to be arrested in the case this week.

BSR Congress MLA Suresh Babu, a nephew of B Sreeramulu, former minister and close associate of mining baron G Janardhana Reddy, was arrested yesterday.

The scam was exposed by former Karnataka Lokayukta N Santosh Hegde, who in his report, had said 7.74 million tonnes of iron ore were illegally exported between 2006-07 and 2010-11, causing huge loss to the exchequer.
