A body representing successful applicants of the DDA's recent housing scheme on Monday demanded that the process of handing over flats to "genuine" allottees should be started soon.
In a letter to Delhi Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna, DDA Housing Scheme 2008 Allottes' Association has appealed to him to cancel allotments of only bogus applicants and punish only the guilty.
A large number of allottees, who claimed they had applied through "legitimate" documents, staged a demonstration at the DDA headquarter here asking authorities not to "penalise" them for the acts of "some persons who indulged in fraudulent activities".
A delegation of the association also met the DDA authorities who they claimed have assured them that the process of handing over the flats would begin soon after the probe is over.
The DDA has constituted an inquiry committee to investigate the alleged irregularities in the draw of lots that held on December 16 last year. The panel is expected to submit its report by January 24.
Meanwhile, Indian Justice Party chief Udit Raj lashed out at police for the arrest of law graduate Deepak Kumar in connection with the scam, saying it was "not fair" to target a person who helped in revealing the "facts". "What was the police doing for the past two months. We (Raj and Kumar) informed police about the things to come. We asked the DDA to stop the process. Now, police is targeting a person who helped in unravelling the crime though he was part of it initially," Raj said in New Delhi.
