New Delhi: The Army on Saturday ordered a court of inquiry into the Adarsh Housing Society scam in Mumbai and the alleged role of senior serving and retired officers, including Major General RK Hooda, in it.

"Yes, a court of inquiry has been ordered in the Adarsh Society episode and certainly Major General RK Hooda figures among those who will be examined," a senior officer in the Army headquarters here told PTI.

The Army's Pune-based Southern Command headquarters ordered the probe to find out how these officers had issued a No-Objection Certificate to the private housing society to construct a 31-storeyed complex on a plot in Kolaba.

Maj Gen Hooda was the Mumbai-based Area Commander for Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa.

The 104-apartment Society got embroiled in a controversy after the Navy had raised concerns over security as the building over-looked important military installations.
