  • On 22nd February 2012, the Bombay High Court directed the city police commissioner to prosecute Kripashankar Singh for "criminal misconduct" under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988. A PIL filed by activist Sanjay Tiwari, who alleged that the Congress MLA had amassed wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income. The court also said "The PIL shall be treated as FIR and the report submitted by the state Anti-Corruption Bureau in March 2011 showing Kripashankar's income and expenditure shall be treated as investigation." Kripashankar Singh's son Narendra Mohan is married to Ankita, daughter of Kamlesh Singh, who was a minister in the Koda cabinet, and is now in jail in connection with the hawala scam. Ankita had received Rs 1.75 crore in her account from Kamlesh, the PIL said, adding there were huge transactions from the bank accounts of Kripashankar's wife Malti Devi too.
  • On 2nd March 2012, SC slammed him for "bench-hunting" for having mentioned his plea (against Bombay HC order) before a different bench on Friday after getting the same withdrawn from the court’s mentioning list on Thursday. Moreover, the bench declined to put any interim stay on Bombay HC as he had sought.
