The investigating agency Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) may start a probe into the "Wakf land" selling to the Ambanis if the state government gives a green signal to the investigative agency.
Antilia, which is believed as the most expensive residence in the world, has been built on the land on Mumbai's Altamount Road. Arif Naseem Khan, Maharashtra's minority affairs minster, while stating about the incident, stated, "The state government could consider referring this matter to CBI."
Continuing his statement, Khan said, "The state sought law and judiciary department's opinion on the issue. The legal department in return has referred the issue to the home department on July 25, 2011."
The deal between the Ambanis and a trust over selling the Wakf land can become a new jittery for the Reliance chief. However, Khan also said that a notice, which was issued to the trust, had been withdrawn as they (trust) paid Rs 16 lakh as penalty to regularize the deal.
