Bangalore: A freedom fighter has filed a PIL
petition in the Karnataka High Court demanding a CBI inquiry
into illegal mining in the state.

When the petition by Bangalore-based freedom fighter H S
Doreswamy came up for hearing, a Division Bench comprising
Justice JS Khehar and Justice AS Bopanna adjourned it to
June 3 in view of the matter of illegal mining being heard by
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.
