CBI questions ex-Haryana CM Hooda
The CBI on Monday questioned formerHaryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda in connection with alleged irregularities in the allotment of 14 industrial plots at Panchkula, by Haryana Urban Development Authority.
Hooda, who was the de facto chairman of HUDA, was examined by the agency for the first time since it registered the case against him, an IAS officer and two other HUDA officials last year.
"Yes, he is being examined," CBI spokesperson R K Gaur said when asked about the development.
The agency had recently also examined UPSC member and the then Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Chattar Singh in connection with the case.
It is alleged that the orders for the allotment were issued from the Chief Minister's office.
CM Manohar Lal Khattar had in December 2015 ordered that the State Vigilance Bureau register an FIR in the case and the matter then be referred to the CBI.
