Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday rejected the State government’s petition challenging CBI enquiry in the Life Mission Project.
The single bench allowed the petition filed by the CBI seeking removal of stay on the probe against Life Mission CEO U V Jose. The court also accepted the CBI’s contention that the MoU on transactions is being concealed and that the MoU was signed to avoid the audit.
The High Court also rejected the contention that the CBI should not be allowed to probe the role of the government in this regard. The verdict was given by Justice Somarajan.
