Adarsh scam: Army to probe Maj Gen Hooda`s role

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.
