Adarsh scam: Ashok Chavan appears before judicial commission
Mumbai, June 30 (ANI): Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on Saturday appeared before the two member judicial commission probing the Adarsh Housing Society scam in Mumbai.
Chavan, who had to step down as Chief Minister soon after the alleged scam surfaced in November 2010, is one of the 14 accused in the case by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The CBI, which is probing various irregularities and violation of rules in the construction of the Adarsh Housing Society in South Mumbai, has in its FIR alleged that Chavan as revenue minister of Maharashtra between 1999 and 2003 had given his consent to the inclusion of civilians in the Adarsh Society which was meant for defense personnel.
Former Maharashtra Chief Ministers Vilasrao Deshmukh and Sushilkumar Shinde had earlier appeared before the commission.
The 31-storey Adarsh Housing Society, claimed to be meant for Kargil war heroes, landed in controversy after media reports said that several politicians, bureaucrats and defence personnel owned flats there. (ANI)
