Shimla, Apr 11 (UNI) With the state vigilance and anti corruption bureau initiating an inquiry into the allegations of disproportionate assets against Subhash Ahluwalia, the former private secretary of the former chief minister Virbhadra Singh, the possibility of string of probes against those whose name had figured prominently in the ''chargesheet'' submitted by the BJP to the Governor while the Congress was in power, is on cards.

Sources in the Vigilance Bureau said that the 'chargesheet' document, prepared by the BJP has been forwarded to the bureau and the vigilance bureau sleuth has already started its preliminary investigations into the allegations levelled in the 'chargesheet'.

The intelligence wings of the police department is keeping a vigil on the actions of few of the opposition members, the name of whom had figured in the BJP 'chargesheet', the sources added.

The vigilance bureau had already booked former Congress minister Singhi Ram, former chairman of Himachal Board of School Education, B.R. Rahi, besides registering an FIR in to the much-hyped Sohal - Dharabla road case. Interestingly the name of all these persons and cases were mentioned in the 'chargesheet'.

The BJP 'chargesheet' document contained details and serious allegations on the infamous CPMT scam, Resin and Catechu scams, selling of government tourism properties at throwaway prices to its favourites, bungling in the funds allotted in national horticulture mission and many more department wise charges.

Yesterday, the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau had questioned Subhash Ahluwalia, in connection with his assets.

Ahluwalia was examined at the police headquarters where he was questioned regarding allegations levelled against him.

The sleuths have asked Mr Ahluwalia to furnish few documents in the matter.

Ahluwalia, an IAS officer, was private secretary to Virbhadra Singh while the latter was the Chief Minister and presently is posted as Settlement Officer, Dharamsala.

Mr Ahluwalia's name had figured in the chargesheet that the BJP had given to the Governor last year, seeking an investigation.
