J&K defence land scam: BJP demands CBI probe
Jammu and Kashmir unit of BJP demanded a CBI probe into the alleged Rs 1,000 crore defence land scam in the state.
Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir unit of BJP on Wednesday demanded a CBI probe into the alleged Rs 1,000 crore defence
land scam in the state.
The state unit of the party had earlier this month
claimed to have exposed the land scam, alleging that ruling
National Conference leaders were shielding land mafias who had
grabbed 200 acres of Air Force property in Srinagar`s
sensitive security zone.
State BJP president Shamsher Singh Manhas released a
36-page book on the alleged scam here today.
"Private persons in connivance with defence and state
government officials grabbed 200 acres of land near Srinagar
IAF station in Budgam district," he alleged.
The BJP state chief said the report has been presented to
Defence Minister A K Antony in New Delhi and he had promised a
probe into it.
