Big names slowed Adarsh probe: CBI Court
Mumbai: The special CBI court here, which
rejected the bail pleas of seven accused in the Adarsh Housing Society case last week, has observed that involvement of high-
profile persons affected the pace of the probe.
"Because of the high personalities involved,
investigation did not take its own pace," observed special
judge M V Kulkarni.
On April 4, the judge rejected the bail applications of
former Maharashtra legislator K L Gidwani, bureaucrat Pradeep
Vyas, Major General (retd) T K Kaul, Major General (retd) A R
Kumar, Brigadier (retd) M M Wanchoo, retired Defence Estates
Officer R C Thakur and former Deputy Secretary in state Urban
Development Department P V Deshmukh.
In the detailed order, which became available today, the
court has added that some progress has been made, and the
investigation is at a crucial stage.
The accused had sought bail on the ground that
investigations were over. But CBI said that they might
tamper with evidence and threaten witnesses.
The case pertains to alleged irregularities in the
construction, and allotment of apartments, in the 31-storey
high-rise Adarsh in south Mumbai.
