The CBI is likely to close its probe into two Commonwealth Games related matters — the Barapullah elevated road case and bailout package given to Emaar MGF for the construction of the games village.
The agency sources said that though no closure report has been filed in the court so far, it is likely to move court for closing the FIR registered last year against Public Works Department officials and a few firms.
The FIR was registered in connection with alleged irregularities in the project for the construction of the Rs 620-crore Barapullah Nullah flyover. The CBI had alleged that the contractor and PWD officials inflated the cost of the project.
The agency has also decided to close its preliminary enquiry into the Rs 766-crore bailout package given to Emaar MGF by the Delhi Development Authority in the construction of 1,168 flats in the CWG village.
The Comptroller and Auditor General in its report had said that the DDA had extended a bailout package worth Rs 766.89 crore in the form of procurement of 333 apartments at the rate of Rs 11000 per square feet on the grounds that the project was of "national prestige and was to be completed in time".
VK Shunglu committee had also raised question marks on the bailout procedure.
