SC relief for ex Railway Minister in 1995 graft case
The Supreme Court today dropped criminal proceedings against former railway minister C K Jaffer Sharief in a corruption case.
Sharief was facing allegations of taking his staff illegally on an official trip abroad in 1995.
The Supreme Court in its judgement delivered by a bench headed by Justice P Sathasivam ruled that there is no evidence to show personal involvement of the petitioner.
Sharief has challenged a Karnataka High Court order dismissing his petition under section 482 CrPC for quashing of the proceedings.
