Underworld money in construction biz being probed: CM
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday stated in the Legislative Assembly here that his government was probing the intelligence inputs on the underworld money in real estate business in Mumbai. Replying to a debate on the law and order situation in the state, Fadnavis said that police should be given more time to crack the Govind Pansare murder case, and rejected the demand to hand it over to CBI. Intelligence inputs about underworld funding of real estate projects in the city were being received for the last four years but the earlier government did not take any action, he alleged. “But my government has started taking effective steps in this direction. There will not be a direct proof (of underworld funds) but it is our duty to find the evidence. The underworld connection could be in SRA (slum rehabilitation) projects.
