Bangalore: Union Law Minister M Veerappa Moily on Saturday said law would take its own course in regard to CBI investigation into the affairs of a company, owned by three Karnataka ministers, accused of illegal mining.

Talking to reporters here, Moily said he does not wish to express an opinion over the issue as the investigation is on.

However, he said, "The law will clearly take its course. Nobody can stop that".

When asked for his reaction to Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa's reported statement that he was unaware of the probe, Moily said he (Moily) knows that the CBI inquiry is on.

Asked to comment on the inquiry, Governor H R Bhardwaj told reporters separately that he had no knowledge about it.

"I have no knowledge of any enquiry. You let me know. Come and discuss with me. You can ask the Chief Minister. I have frankly no information on this issue," Bhardwaj said.

CBI sleuths this week verified records and documents of Obulapuram Mining Company, owned by ministers G Karunakara Reddy, G Janardhana Reddy and B Sriramulu, in the district headquarters town of Bellary following allegations of illegal mining.

OMC has denied the charges.
