FIR sought against ex-Maha CM Nilangekar in Adarsh scam

An RTI activist on Tuesday filed an application before a special court here seeking directions to the CBI to register an FIR against former Maharashtra Chief Minister Shivajirao Patil Nilangekar in connection with the Adarsh Society scam.

In the application filed before the special CBI judge S G Dige, the activist, Pravin Wategoankar has contended that during Nilangekar’s term as the state Revenue Minister, he had allegedly granted certain approvals to the society illegally. ‘In return, his son-in-law Arun Dawle was allotted a flat in the society,’ Wategoankar alleged in the application. The activist has relied on a CBI application that had been earlier filed in the lower court seeking custody of former MLA and Adarsh promoter late Kanhaiyalal Gidwani when he was arrested.

‘CBI, in its remand application, said Gidwani had opened an account in Kallappanna Awade Ichalkaranji Janata Sahakari Bank in Sangli under a proxy name, in which huge amounts of cash were deposited by him from time to time. Most of the amount deposited was then transferred to the accounts of his relatives.
