S R Hiremath, founder president of the Samaj Parivartana Samudaya, who filed an Interlocutory Application (IA) with the Central Empowered Committee (CEC) constituted by the SC on Thursday, presented additional documents in connection with pending cases of illegal mining.

A release issued by SPS said that the submissions were based on the Supreme Court order dated February 1, 2013.

It mentioned two iron ore mines of R Praven Chandra, alleged to have done illegal mining of 13.2 lakh MTs in John Mines.

The recommendation was apparently based on the fact that two payments amounting to `6 crore were made by M/s Praveen Chandra to the kin of B S Yeddyurappa, as quid pro quo towards the sanction of the mining lease. It is alleged that losses were caused to M/s Mysore Minerals Ltd by politicians through rampant abuse of power, especially by former minister D K Shivakumar. 

It also mentions that D K Shivakumar, in connivance with P K Pounraj accumulated illegal wealth by defrauding MML.
