HC directs to name respondents in PIL

H S Doreswamy has filed a Public Interest Litigation seeking a Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) inquiry into mining activities in Bellary.

The petitioner argued that the State Government had failed to take action even a year after it received the Lokayukta report.

The petitioner’s counsel stated that some of the people implicated in the Lokayukta report were Cabinet Ministers and had dodged warrants against them in several cases.

The Karnataka High Court observed that the petitioner has not named any respondents in the petition and directed the petitioner to file an amended application with the respondents’ names.
