In yet another case, key files related to the Adarsh Housing Society went missing from the office of the union ministry of environment and forests, Central Bureau of Investigation officials said Saturday.
“Many files related to the scam-tainted Adarsh Society have gone missing from the MoEF office in New Delhi,” the official told IANS.
The official, however, declined comment on further details on the missing files.
In November last year, key files regarding clearances granted to Adarsh society had gone missing from the urban development department of the Maharashtra government.
The papers included remarks of the state government officials. The disappearance of the files was brought to the notice of the CBI.
The 31-storey Adarsh Housing Society apartment block in south Mumbai's Colaba area was meant for Kargil heroes and war widows, but flats were given to bureaucrats, relatives of politicians and former army and navy chiefs. It was also built flouting environmental norms, say experts.
