High Court stays proceedings against Anil Lad

The High Court of Karnataka on Monday stayed the lower court proceedings against MLA Anil Lad. Lad had approached the court seeking quashing of proceedings initiated against him by the lower court.

He was booked under the Prevention of Corruption Act,  1988 for abuse of power. He and his company VSL Mining Company were named in the CBI report on illegal mining and export of 50,000 tonnes of iron ore that was seized by the CBI at Belekeri port in 2012. It is alleged that his company sold 14,343 tonnes of iron ore without permission to Mallikarjuna Shipping Company. Justice Anand Byrareddy granted stay and ordered notice to CBI.

Justice A N Venugopala Gowda is hearing a petition and is monitoring how the state and the Centre are creating awareness on the fundamental duties among the citizens of the country.
