Bangalore: A freedom fighter has filed a PIL in the Karnataka High Court demanding a CBI inquiry into alleged illegal mining in the state.
When the petition by Bangalore-based freedom fighter HS Doreswamy came up for hearing, a Division Bench comprising Justices JS Khehar and AS Bopanna adjourned it to June 3 as
the matter was being heard by the Supreme Court.

In his PIL, Doreswamy submitted that the state government had failed in taking stringent steps to curb illegal mining and demanded that the probe be entrusted to a Central
investigative agency like the CBI.
