Allahabad High Court to hear plea on bungalow allotted to Mayawati today
A PIL seeks a CBI probe into alleged merger and transfer of a bungalow to former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and BSP chief Mayawati in Lucknow.
Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court will on Friday hear a pending PIL seeking a CBI probe into alleged merger and transfer of a bungalow to former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and BSP chief Mayawati in Lucknow.
A division bench of Justice Satyendra Singh Chauhan and Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi gave this order on a PIL filed by ML Yadav in 2013.
Earlier, the court had given one last opportunity to the state government counsel on his request to file a supplementary affidavit on information regarding the alleged merger of any other government bungalows in Lucknow.
It had also directed the petitioner to do more research work and find out as to how many other bungalows had been merged in Lucknow in an identical way as was done in bungalow allotment to Mayawati.
The petitioner sought a direction to produce all the records of a bungalow in Mall Avenue in Lucknow and make it clear under which procedure/channel it was ultimately allegedly merged and transferred in Mayawati's name.
He also sought a direction for a detailed inquiry by an independent agency like CBI in the matter.
