Based on the CBI charge sheet filed in the Adarsh society scam, the special CBI court will issue summons to all the accused named in the charge sheet, including former chief minister Ashok Chavan.

The agency may, as part of procedure, formally arrest the four accused who had not been arrested before, including Chavan.

However, sources in the CBI said that the decision to arrest the accused that have not been arrested before is upon the discretion of the investigating officer.

The court is yet to take cognisance of the charge sheet.

The central agency on Wednesday afternoon submitted the charge sheet, with original documents and statements of witnesses recorded during the investigation.

As per procedure, the charge sheet is first submitted to the registration department, which scrutinises and verifies it before sending it to the concerned court, said sources in the court.

On receipt of the charge sheet, the court will issue summons to all the accused, asking them to remain present in court.

All the accused will then be given copies of the charge sheet.

Sources said the timing of the summons would depend on when the registry finishes examining the documents and evidence attached with the charge sheet.
