Mumbai, Nov.27 (ANI): Mumbai Police on Saturday said that they had registered a case of theft after a senior Maharashtra Government official informed them about the disappearance of key papers relating to the scam-tainted Adarsh housing society.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Cherring Dorje told reporters here that the state's Urban Development Secretary Gurudas Bajpe had given a written complaint to the Marine Drive Police Station about the missing documents.
"We have registered a case against unknown persons. According to the UD department officials, several papers from the 10 files on Adarsh society were missing," Dorje said.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has also been informed about the missing papers, added Dorje and a senior CBI official.
The papers reportedly included the comments of senior state government bureaucrats and then chief minister Ashok Chavan.
The concerned authorities in the state urban development department are being questioned.
The Adarsh Society was originally meant to be a six-storey structure to house Kargil war heroes and war widows. It was converted into a 31-storey building and flats were allotted to bureaucrats, politicians' relatives and senior defence officers. (ANI)
