A search for CP violation in Cabibbo-suppressed D±→ K0 SK±and D±s→ K0Sπ± decays is performed using pp collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb-1, recorded by the LHCb experiment. The individual CP-violating asymmetries are measured to be ACP → K0SK± = (+0.03 ± 0.17 ± 0.14)%

AD±sCP → K0Sπ± = (+0.38 ± 0.46 ± 0.17)%, assuming that CP violation in the Cabibbo-favoured decays is negligible. A combination of the measured asymmetries for the four decay modes D±(s) → K0 SK±and D±(s) → K0Sπ± gives the sum AD±→K0SK±CP + AD±s→K0Sπ± CP = (+0.41 ± 0.49 ± 0.26)%. In all cases, the first uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic. The results represent the most precise measurements of these asymmetries to date and show no evidence for CP violation.
