Justice M B Shah Commission,which was set up by the Gujarat government to probe corruption charges levelled by Congress against CM Narendra Modi and other ministers,has been given a three-month extension. M B Shah commission was given an extension till October by the government today after its term ended on June 30, Finance Minister and state government spokesperson Nitin Patel said Monday. In its interim report submitted in October last,the one-member commission had given the state government a clean chit in nine of the 15 cases in which charges of corruption and favouritism were levelled. The panel was appointed on August 17,2011 in the wake of Congress submitting a memorandum to then President Pratibha Patil alleging that the state government had indulged in large-scale corruption and favouritism with regard to certain industrial houses.
