In a big relief to former chief minister Ashok Chavan, Bombay high court on Friday set aside governor’s sanction for prosecuting him in the Adarsh case. Ashok Chavan had filed a petition challenging Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao’s assent to prosecute him. Advocate hiten venegaonkar appearing for CBI said that the agency would appeal against the HC order in the Supreme Court.The state had opposed his petition arguing that if it is allowed it would mean a straight acquittal for him. It would then render the entire probe “futile”. Also readAdarsh scam: Maha defends Chavan’s prosecution(This is a breaking news. More details to follow)
