Weeks after Asianet Newsable reported exclusively on the alleged Wakf Board scam, members of the minority community have called upon the Karnataka government to order a CBI probe.
A major protest was held at the state Wakf Board office, demanding a CBI probe into the allegations of the corruption and land grabbing.
The Karnataka government had recently tabled Anwar Manippady commission report on Wakf land scam that is believed to be worth over Rs 2 lakh plus crore.
The report, which was exclusively accessed by Asianet Newsable, exposed the rot within the Wakf Board and the organised loot of its properties by several politicians
In his explosive 7000-page report, Manippady had named top Congress leaders, including Rehman Khan, CK Jaffer Sharieff, Mallikarjun Kharge.
According to the report, acres and acres of Wakf land across 7 districts of Karnataka were either been encroached upon or just sold off.
