The CBI on Monday conducted raids at Adarsh society office in Mumbai in connection with the Kargil for profit scam. The raids started at 6 am in the morning.

Yesterday, CBI conducted raids on four of the accused. Among those raided include chief promoters of Adarsh RC Thakur and Kanhaiyalal Gidwani, who is also a former Congress member of legislative council (MLC), former major-general MM Wanchoo, who is president of the society, and Ramanand Tiwari former principal secretary of Urban Development Department.
