Adarsh scam: Clean chit to Shinde

New Delhi/Mumbai, Sept 19 : The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday gave a clean chit to Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde in the Adarsh Housing Society scam.


Social activist Pravin Wategaonkar had filed a Public-Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Bombay High Court alleging that former Maharashtra chief minister Shinde owned an illegal flat in Adarsh building.

On Sept 2, the Bombay High Court said the Centre, Maharashtra government, CBI, and Adarsh Society may file their responses on whether Shinde should be added as an accused in the case.

The 30-storey apartment, housing many top level defence officials, was built on a disputed army land at Colaba in Mumbai and it is alleged that the flats meant for the families of the Kargil martyrs were allotted to top defence officials and kins of politicians.
