Jaipur: The Rajasthan High Court on Wednesday
ordered a CBI probe into the alleged land deal by M K

A Division Bench, comprising Justice K S Chaudhari and
Justice R C Gandhi, said the state government was at liberty
to transfer the IPS officer to any other equivalent post till
the probe was over.

It said the Court was of the opinion that the entire
episode of land transaction between the vendor and the vendee
needed to be investigated by the CBI.

"Till the CBI concludes its probe, it shall be in the
interest of justice and fitness of things that respondent M K
Devrajan shall report to the Administrative Department of the
state.

"The state government is at liberty to post him to any
other equivalent post," Tanveer Ahmed, counsel for petitioner
Hemant Gajraj quoting the order said.
