Kota (Raj): The Anti Corruption Bureau,
investigating an alleged land scam, has filed a charge sheet
against a former Rajasthan minister and 29 others in a special
court here.

Madan Dilawar, who was a minister in the Vasundhara Raje
government, and 29 others have been alleged of fabricating
documents for an auction of government land under Atru
Panchayat Samiti of Baran district in 1998, Baran ACB in-
charge Deendayal Bhargav said.
As per the ACB findings, Dilawar used his political clout
to ensure that the plot was sold to his near ones at extremely
low rates, hence causing a revenue loss to the state
exchequer.

The standard land rate decided by the district level
committee of the state government was completely sidelined in
the process.
Among those to benefit from the scheme included the wife
of the then block development officer Laadbai, sitting block
Congress president Ashok Meena, Sarpanch Brijmohan Soni and
his family members and the wives of three panchayat
secretaries.

The charge sheet against the former BJP minister and 29
others has been filed yesterday under section 120 B (criminal
conspiracy) of the IPC. They were later granted bail by the
court.
