The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday directed the Haryana DGP to constitute a special investigation team (SIT) comprising three Haryana cadre IPS officers, preferably natives of other states, to probe allegations against former Haryana Congress MLA Ram Kishan Fauji of seeking Rs 5 crore bribe to get change of land use (CLU) permission in Gurgaon.
- Rs 100 cr in excess compensation for land: Issue show-cause notices to officers, HC tells Haryana
- Gurmeet Ram Rahim, Junaid lynching issues kept Haryana on the edge in 2017
- Supreme Court quashes probe against former Haryana official
- Cash for CLU case: HC stays Haryana Lokayukta order for FIR against 5 ex-MLAs
- CLU-CD case: Haryana govt to challenge HC relief to former CPS Fauji
- CLU CD Case: Four more ex- Congress MLAs in the line of ADGP’s fire
The directions came from the Division Bench comprising Justices Surya Kant and A B Chaudhari. The court also dismissed Fauji’s plea seeking vacation of stay put by the Division Bench on its single judge bench’s order of February 27, 2015, wherein the judge had quashed Haryana Lokayukta order to register an FIR against him.
Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) leaders had in September 2013 released a CD that purportedly showed Fauji seeking Rs 5 crore for getting CLU permission.
