Apart from Delhi Development Authority (DDA) officials, the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police is also probing role of officials from other government agencies in the housing scheme scam.
M.L. Gautam, the retired DDA clerk who was arrested, named 18 persons during his interrogation. “We are verifying whether the names are connected to the DDA or any other government organisation,” said SBK Singh, additional commissioner of police (EOW).
Police said they have called all the allottees who applied through Gautam for interrogation. Gautam had managed to get 40 flats under the Scheduled Caste (SC) category for himself. While 10 successful allotees of the 40 were from Bulandhshar, Khurja and Aligarh, the rest were from Delhi.
“We are examining their loan application papers. We have still not received details of documents attached with the PAN cards of these allottees. The findings of these documents would be of immense importance,” said Singh.
The police have also sent a ‘questionnaire’ to DDA officials. These questions relate to the “location code” of the 228 flats that were not specified in the DDA brochure.
“We want to know under what codes were these flats allotted. We have asked for all the codes the DDA used to disperse these flats. Also under what codes these flats were dispersed during the last scheme,” said the officer.
Police said allottees from Bulandshahar were not cooperating and the police are still gathering ‘documentary evidences’ to confront them.
