The Maharashtra government today submitted a report in the Supreme Court on its investigations into allegations of disproportionate assets against former Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh and his family members.

The report was filed in a sealed cover by a special investigating team,headed by Mumbai Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik,which probed the alleged benami assets of Singh and his family.

The report was filed in compliance with a March 13 order of the Supreme Court which had asked Patnaik to conduct an independent probe and collect documentary evidence regarding all movable and immovable properties of Kripashankar and his family,including his wife,son,daughter-in-law and daughter while seeking a report in a sealed envelope.

A bench comprising Justices H L Dattu and A R Dave had earlier refused to stay the investigation against Singh and his family members but put an interim stay on the process of attaching and seizure of their properties.

But the Bench had restrained the politician and his family members from “alienating,transferring or dealing with properties” enumerated in the petition against them.

Kripashankar had alleged in the SC that the case is politically motivated.
