Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government will file an appeal in the High Court against the CBI probe into the Life Mission scam in Wadakkanchery.
It is reported that the government has sought legal advice from Advocate General CP Sudhakara Prasad in this regard. In his legal advice, the Advocate General informed the government that an appeal can be moved to question CBI's one sided action.
Following this, the cabinet has decided to move an appeal against the CBI probe. A petition will be filed in the High Court regarding this. In the appeal, the government will question the CBI’s action to register a case and initiate a probe on Life Mission controversy.
CBI can probe into corruption cases in India as per the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act. But the CBI should seek the government’s permission before initiating the probe.
Most of the states including Kerala have given permission for CBI to probe into such cases. The legal experts pointed out that Kerala can nullify this permission given to CBI.
