The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the withdrawal of a plea against the Karnataka High Court's order quashing the FIR against former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa in the alleged illegal mining case.
A Bench of Justices T S Thakur and Gyan Sudha Mishra, however, pulled up the petitioner for filing the appeal saying that he should make up his mind before approaching the court.
The stinging remarks of the Lokayukta against Yeddyurappa in the alleged mining scam had led to his exit as the chief minister last July.
The High Court, however, on Yeddyurappa's appeal, had in March this year quashed the FIR against him and had also struck down the part of the Lokayukta's report which accused him of complicity in illegal mining.
Challenging the order, petitioner Vishwanath had said the High Court "had erred in holding" that there was no material placed on record to establish that Yeddyurappa had shown any official favour to the companies.
