Mumbai, Oct 31: Former Navy Chief Admiral Madhavendra Singh on Saturday, Oct 30 said that he has returned the flat which was allotted to him in Mumbai's Adarsh Housing Cooperative Society in Colaba.

"I have returned the flat which was allotted to me in the Adarsh Housing Cooperative Society. The moment I found that it was not meant for us, but was meant for war widows, I have returned it," Singh said.

Singh also added that “At no stage were we ever told that these flats belonged to war widows. In that case I would have withdrawn then and there. We are not fools to take anybody else's place."

Adarsh Housing Society in Colaba (Mumbai), was originally meant to be a six-storey structure to house Kargil war heroes and widows, got converted into a 31-storey and allotted to bureaucrats, top defence officers, a former environment minister and legislators.

It is also reported that Ashok Chavan's late mother-in-law, Bhagwati Manoharlal Sharma, was also one of the beneficiaries of a flat.
