The Bombay High Court asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe further into allegations of four benami flats in the Adarsh scam case. According to reports, the court is not satisfied with the report submitted by the agency.
The Adarsh housing society scam involves senior bureaucrats, politicians and ministers who committed various offenses in acquiring flats which were reserved for war widows and personnel of the Defence Ministry.
Earlier in April, the court had ordered the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) to demolish the housing society and launch criminal proceedings against those involved into dubious activities. However, the Supreme Court later put a stay on High Court’s order in July and asked the central government to take possession of Adarsh society.
