Ashok Malhotra, whose was a typical 'rags to riches' was accused of siphoning off millions of rupees by illegally selling plots meant for displaced slum-dwellers.
CBI in its raids on his house in Mukherjee Nagar in the last week of July had recovered several incriminting documents.
Known for his proximity to some key politicians, he had allegedly sold off plots meant for relocation of slum-dwellers in northwest Delhi's Dheerpur area, in association with some Delhi Development Authority (DDA) officials.
Malhotra was also grilled in another case involving alleged fraudulent allotment of plots in Molarband Phase II here under the resettlement scheme for displaced slum dwellers.
