The Bombay High Court Wednesday issued notice to former chief minister Ashok Chavan while hearing a revision application filed by the CBI seeking the court’s permission to drop his name from among the 13 accused in the alleged Adarsh housing society scam.
CBI had sought to remove Chavan’s name from the case after Governor K Sankaranarayanan refused to grant sanction to prosecute him.
The court asked the CBI if the sanction to prosecute Chavan was necessary in the case. The CBI told the court that the sanction would be required as Chavan was a sitting MLA and revenue minister at the time when the alleged offence was committed, between October 1999 and October 2004.
The sanction, the CBI told the court, would be required to prosecute Chavan under the IPC for criminal conspiracy without which the prosecution could not have proceeded under the sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
