The Supreme Court on Monday refused to lift the interim stay put by the Karnataka High Court on a probe against Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar in connection with a corruption case.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a petition in the apex court challenging the interim stay by the high court. The bench, comprising Justices Aniruddha Bose and Bela M. Trivedi, hearing the plea, issued a notice asking Shivakumar to file his response to the CBI’s appeal.

Earlier, in July, the Supreme Court refused to interfere with the Karnataka High Court’s order granting an interim stay on a CBI probe against the Congress leader.

In February, the high court stayed CBI proceedings in a corruption case against Shivakumar and also directed the probe agency to submit an action taken report in the case registered under the Prevention of Corruption Act (PMLA). The corruption case was filed against Shivakumar after a search was carried out by the Income Tax Department in 2017.
