Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE) filed writ petitions before the Karnataka high court today seeking a stay of the Lokayukta court order banning the company from collecting toll and impounding the collections made so far over the alleged corruption and illegalities in Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Project.

Controversial NICE Managing Director NICE Ashok Kheny and other related petitioners filed five petitions which came before the single bench judge Justice H N Nagamohan Das.

On October 25, the Lokayukta Court ordered probe against three former chief ministers of Karnataka -- H D Deve Gowda, S M Krishna and B S Yeddyurappa and 27 others in the case.

Lokayukta Judge N K Sudhindra Rao in his 504-page order had directed Lokayukta police to conduct investigation against, in all 30 accused, in connection with the alleged corruption and illegalities of the project.
