HC dismisses petition against Hazare
Seeking a probe against Hazare and the trust by Income Tax department and Charity Commissioner, the PIL stated, "The trust has not submitted audit reports showing expenditure from the year 2005 to 2007."
The PIL alleged that trustees including Hazare, were indulging in malpractices and siphoning of funds from the trust. A division bench headed by Justice D D Sinha while dismissing the PIL, asked the petitioner to approach the Charity Commissioner for relief.
According to the PIL, in May last year, the Charity Commissioner had issued show cause notice to the trust which had not submitted reply. The PIL had also sought directions to be issued to the trust to submit all the records of its funds and expenditure.
