The CBI officials refused to give more details on the closure of Mayawati's case. On August 8, the Supreme Court had disposed off a petition seeking review of its earlier judgment of quashing CBI investigation into alleged disproportionate assets case against the four-time Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati.

The court had held that the investigating agency had exceeded its jurisdiction by lodging a police case against the BSP supremo without its direction.

The Supreme Court also said that its order on Mayawati was only in connection with the Taj Corridor case and other aspects were not entertained.

The CBI inquiry against Mayawati began after allegations of financial irregularities surfaced during the development of the areas around the Taj Mahal, a World Heritage site. The Taj Corridor, as it was called, was commissioned by her in 2003.
