HC stays further probein Shankar Reddy case
(Kochi,march,09,2017):The Kerala High Court on Wednesday asked the Vigilance and AntiCorruption Bureau (VACB) whether it had any guidelines evolved to find out fake complaints and what was the significance of the Vigilance if it could not identify fake and genuine complaints.

The court asked these questions when the petition filed by Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala challenging the case registered against him in connection with the promotion and appointment of N. Shankar Reddy as Director of Vigilance, by the previous UDF government came up for hearing.

The court stayed the further proceedings and investigation in the case until further order.

When the petition of Mr. Chennithala came up for hearing, the public prosecutor submitted that the quick verification was over and that there was no scope for proceeding further under the Prevention of Corruption Act in the case.

In view of the submission, the further proceedings and investigation would stand stayed until further order, the court observed.

During the hearing, the court orally observed that the Vigilance had no special power and it was only part of the police. The court asked the officers of the Vigilance to keep in mind that they did not have any special privilege.

The case against Mr. Chennithala was registered on a directive by the Thiruvananthapuram Vigilance Court on a petition filed by Paichira Navaz. The High Court directed the VACB to report the details of various complaints made by Navaz against various persons in various courts in the State.
