Indore: The Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court has directed the Economic and Offence Wing to file a chargesheet by June 30 against former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh and 11 others in connection with alleged irregularities committed during construction of a shopping mall.

A division bench comprising Justices Prakash Shrivastava and S K Seth yesterday gave the direction while hearing a petition filed by Mahesh Garg stating that the state EOW was dilly-dallying in the Treasure Mall case, petitioner's counsel Manohar Dalal said.

In his petition, Garg stated that though the EOW registered a case against Digvijay and 11 others in February 2009, it was dragging its feet in the probe.

Garg has lodged a complaint with the EOW alleging that gross irregularities have been committed in collusion with the state machinery to favour the mall directors unlawfully.

Following the complaint, the EOW registered a case against Digvijay, then State Housing and Environment Minister Choudhay Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi, former Madhya Pradesh Housing Board Chairman C Shekhar, shopping mall owner Manish Kalani and others in 2009.
