Adarsh: CBI gives clean chit to ex-CM
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has given a clean chit to former Maharashtra chief minister and revenue minister Shivajirao Patil-Nilangekar in the Adarsh housing scam case.
"The CBI has said that there is no link between Shivajirao's role as revenue minister and the benefits derived by his son-in-law Arun Dawle, who received a flat in the Adarsh housing society," reported CNN-IBN.
"The CBI has also stated that Nilangekar's acts do not amount to criminal misconduct," the news channel said.
Social activist Pravin Wategaonkar had filed an application in the Bombay High Court seeking Nilangekar to be named as an accused in the case.
The CBI gave a clean chit to Nilangekar in its reply to the high court.
Adarsh, the 30-storey apartment building, housing many top level defence officials, was built on a disputed army land at Colaba in Mumbai and it was alleged that the flats meant for the families of the Kargil martyrs were allotted to top defence officials and kins of politicians.
