The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed the plea that has sought a CBI probe against the Telugu Desam chief N. Chandrababu Naidu for allegedly benefiting a number of large scale business units during his tenure as the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister.
The Apex Court judges Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice F.M. Ibrahim Kalifulla turn down to interfere with the state High Court order which has earlier been rejected by Y.S. Vijaya Lakshmi's plea for CBI probe.
Vijaya Lakshmi is the widow of the late Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, who was killed in the year 2009 during an helicopter crash, and is the honorary President of the YSR Congress party.
She added that Mr. Naidu has exploited his political power to grant favors to the private companies during his reign.
The Apex Court, while declining Vijaya Lakshmi's plea said that the High Court had given a reasoned order and it warranted no further interference.
