Adarsh scam CBI no evidence against Sushilkumar Shinde
Social activist Pravin Wategaonkar filed an application in the High Court demanding
that Shinde be included as an accused in the case, as he allegedly owns benami flats in the plush 31-storey Adarsh building in south Mumbai.
According to Wategaonkar's application, Shinde had suggested inclusion of late Major N W Khankhoje as a member of the Adarsh society.
Wategaonkar, in his application, had also stated that Shinde during his deposition before the commission had said that the Adarsh file had come to him for clearance.
Former MLC Kanhaiyalal Gidwani had deposed before the Adarsh commission that Shinde had asked for inclusion of Khankhoje as member.
Now in an affidavit CBI informed to the Bombay High Court that there is no evidence to suggest that Shinde during his tenure as Maharashtra Chief Minister abused his position as a public servant in the Adarsh Housing Society scam.
Khankhoje's membership may have been pursued by K L Gidwani but it cannot be confirmed as Gidwani has passed away. The CBI charge sheet states that civilian members in the society were included at the instance of Gidwani,"
Investigation conducted by CBI does not reveal any family relationship between Khankhoje and Shinde. There is nothing on record to substantiate deposition made by Gidwani to the commission that Khankhoje was included by Sushilkumar Shinde,"
Next Date of the case - September 26.
