FIR lodged against Kripashankar in graft case
Mumbai: A week after Bombay High Court orders, the Mumbai Police has lodged a case against former Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh and his family members for corruption.
A first information report (FIR) was lodged late Tuesday at the Nirmal Nagar, Khar police station, by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up under the court`s directions, in a public interest litigation filed by a social activist Sanjay Tiwari.
The court has ordered that the SIT should not base its findings on a July 2011 report of the Anti-Corruption Bureau, which it had rejected.
However, the SIT could continue its probe on Tiwari`s petition and the bureau`s report of March 30, 2011 detailing the assets accumulated by Singh and his family members.
Accordingly, the SIT would probe all the movable and immovable assets of Singh and his family, including land, flats, shops, bungalows, commercial premises, vehicles, and bank accounts.
Soon after the high court order last week, Singh had resigned from the coveted post of Mumbai Congress chief.
