PDS scam: Supreme Court rejects PILs seeking court-monitored probe

The Chhattisgarh Anti-Corruption Bureau is probing the alleged irregularities in supply of rice through PDS in the state.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday declined to entertain a clutch of PILs seeking court-monitored CBI probe into the alleged public distribution system scam in Chhattisgarh.

A bench led by Justice T S Thakur said that the petitioners should first go to the high court with their grievances.
