CBI files charge sheets in five housing scamsDecember 30th, 2008 - 8:34 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Dec 30 (IANS) The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Tuesday filed in a city court five charge sheets in five cases relating to irregularities in cooperative group housing societies (CGHS).Filing the charge sheets in the court of a CBI special judge, the investigating agency said these cases were registered following the Delhi High Court order in relation to 135 housing societies.
Subsequently, CBI registered cases relating to 97 CGHS societies in which land was allotted by Delhi Development Authority (DDA).
CBI has filed charge sheets in the cases of United Nations Staff CGHS Ltd., Sarvakalyan CGHS Ltd., Sarvottam CGHS Ltd., Chitrakoot Dham CGHS Ltd. and Ashraya CGHS Ltd.
These cooperative societies were registered in the 1970s and 1980s and were not allotted land by DDA. On becoming defunct, they were wound up by the Registrar of Cooperative Societies (RCS).
But builders, in collusion with YCS officials, fraudulently revived these societies and RCS recommended to DDA for allotment of land on the basis of false and forged documents to cause undue gain for themselves and others, the CBI has alleged.
