The CBI Tuesday said it will close its investigation into alleged corruption charges against Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati, officials said.

The decision comes over a fortnight after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) decided to close its probe against Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav, citing lack of evidence.

CBI officials refused to give more details on the closure of Mayawati's case.

On Aug 8, the Supreme Court had disposed off a petition seeking review of its earlier judgment of quashing CBI investigation into alleged disproportionate assets case against the four-time Uttar Pradesh chief minister.

The court had held that the investigating agency had exceeded its jurisdiction by lodging a police case against the BSP supremo without the court's direction.

The Supreme Court also said that its order on Mayawati was only in connection with the Taj Corridor case and the court did not go into other aspects.

The CBI inquiry against Mayawati began after allegations of financial irregularities surfaced duing the development of the areas around the Taj Mahal, a World Heritage site. The Taj Corridor, as it was called, was commissioned by her in 2003.
