Adarsh scam: CBI likely to question Ashok Chavan
Mumbai: The CBI is likely to question
former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan in connection
with his alleged role in the housing society scam here.
The CBI, which had on November 15 registered a
Preliminary Enquiry (PE) in the scam, is likely to question
Chavan, other state government officials and the 103 members
of the Adarsh Housing Society "in due course of time", a
senior CBI official said.
The official said Chavan may be quizzed "in connection
with a letter he had cleared and signed recommending the
inclusion of civilians in the society" which was originally
meant for widows of Kargil war heroes and war veterans.
Chavan`s three relatives, including his late
mother-in-law and sister-in-law, own flats in the 31-storey
building in Colaba in south Mumbai.
After his name cropped up in connection with the
housing society scam, Chavan had to resign as Chief Minister
The housing society, built on prime defence land, was
constructed in alleged violation of various rules and
regulations. The building was originally meant to be a
six-storey structure but was later extended to 31 floors.
