Cash for Vote: High Court Shocks Stephenson
An unexpected twist was witnessed in cash-for-vote case in which the petition filed by Stephenson stating that quash petition filed by accused A4 Mattaiah should be handled by a different bench was struck off by High Court. The court expressed displeasure that Stephenson’s petition is misleading and in a way that pollutes the minds of Judges. Judge has ordered that case be filed against Stephenson as per Section-15. Also the Judge made clear that Stephenson could appeal to the Chief Justice of High Court if he has an issue with the decision.
