Retired Brigadier MM Wanchoo, one of the key accused in the Adarsh scam, has moved an application before the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court, seeking the keys to his three bank lockers and certain personal documents seized by the agency.
After registering the complaint in January 2011, the CBI had raided the premises of the prime accused, including Wanchoo. It had seized several documents, including bank account statements.
Wanchoo and Adarsh society general secretary RC Thakur are allegedly to have conspired with others and illegally obtained the land allotted to the society, of which they are members.
The plush housing society, built on prime real estate, has been constructed allegedly in violation of rules. It was originally meant to be a six-storey structure to house Kargil war heroes and their kin, but was later extended to 31 floors without mandatory permission, in which several politicians, former defence service chiefs and bureaucrats have cornered flats.
