Adarsh scam: Missing maps, survey sheets traced
Mumbai: Maps and some survey sheets
pertaining to the Adarsh Housing Society that went missing
from the state land records department have been traced, a
judicial panel probing the scam was on Tuesday informed.
Sanjay Dhikle, Superintendent of Mumbai City Survey
and Land Records told the two-member commission that the
documents are available.
"The documents sought by the commission are available
with the office of land records and nothing is missing,"
Dhikle submitted in an affidavit before the commission.
On June 25, he told the commission that historical
maps of 1847 (the first time when Mumbai was mapped
scientifically) and 1882 were "not available" in his office.
The maps, according to lawyers, bear significance as
it can show whether the Adarsh plot existed at the time.
Dhikle had also claimed that certain survey sheets
from 1872-1960 pertaining to the disputed plot are missing.
Along with his affidavit, Dhilke also submitted all
the documents today.
