Four DDA scam accused sent to jailJanuary 31st, 2009 - 8:44 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Jan 31 (IANS) A court here Saturday extended the judicial remand of the four accused arrested for the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) flat allotment scam.Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Digvinay Singh sent all the four accused to custody for 14 days.
The four are Laxmi Narayan Meena, retired DDA employee M.L. Gautam, real estate agent Raju Ram and Deepak Kumar, who allegedly blew the lid off the scam after he fell out with some fellow real estate agents.
The court also rejected the bail plea of Dinesh, who helped the other accused in making fake election cards.
The draw of lots for 5,238 DDA flats, priced between Rs.700,000 to Rs.7.7 million, took place Dec 16. It has been marred by charges of irregularities in selecting successful applicants.
Delhi Police’s Economic Offence Wing (WOW) started investigations after a man, who was allotted a flat in the draw, told the police that he had not even applied for a flat.
