Mumbai: The Special CBI court on Tuesday remanded the seven accused in the multi-crore Adarsh scam in judicial custody till April 17.

Special CBI prosecutor Ejaz Khan, seeking judicial custody for the accused, told the court that the investigation was in progress based on disclosure made by the accused while in police custody.

The court then remanded the accused MLC K L Gidwani, Maharashtra government bureaucrat Pradeep Vyas,; Major General (Retd) T K Kaul; Major General (Retd) A R Kumar; Brigadier (Retd) M M Wanchoo; a retired defence estates officer R C Thakur and former Deputy Secretary in the Urban Department P V Deshmukh, in judicial custody till April 17.

Meanwhile, objecting to the bail application filed by the accused, the CBI in its reply said that if the accused are released on bail, they might tamper with the evidence and threaten witnesses.

The court is likely to pass an order on the bail applications tomorrow.
