Goa Lokayukta resigns

Goa Lokayukta Justice B. Sudarshan Reddy has quit from his post citing personal reasons, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Thursday.

Mr. Parrikar told reporters that Mr. Reddy’s resignation has been accepted.

His appointment was challenged in the High Court by social activist Aires Rodrigues, which was dismissed.

Mr. Reddy, the first ever Lokayukta of the state, assumed charge in March 2013. The Lokayukta is currently hearing various cases, including the multi-crore illegal mining scam.
