The Chhattisgarh High Court Wednesday stayed a probe by the state government-constituted Special Investigation Team (SIT) against a former principal secretary to the chief minister in the erstwhile BJP government.
Last week, the Chhattisgarh government had ordered the state's Economic Offences Wing (EOW) to form an SIT to probe the allegations against Singh.
The probe was ordered based on a complaint to the PMO by Vijay Mishra, he said.
As per the complaint, Singh, formerly an IRS officer, had allegedly concealed that there was a probe conducted against him during his tenure as an IRS officer, while joining then Raman Singh government on contractual appointment, he said.
