Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) is likely to summon Chhagan Bhujbal’s son Samir Bhujbal and nephew Pankaj Bhujbal in connection with Bandra government colony redevelopment project.
ACB has already recorded the statement of Chhagan Bhujbal on Thursday. According to sources, there could be more trouble for the former minister as the ACB is in the process of filing another FIR.
Reports suggest that the ACB is likely to approach Bombay High Court as one of the allegations regarding Mumbai-Nashik toll road does not fall under their jurisdiction. The agency would be requesting the court to direct Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to investigate this case.
The agency is investigating nine allegations levelled by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in their PIL and one of them is of awarding of tender of building Mumbai-Nashik Toll road and bridges to three private companies. Since the National Highway Authority of India is a central organisation, ACB does not have the jurisdiction to carry out investigations into a state matter and hence ACB plans to request the High Court to direct CBI to investigate this case. ACB has already registered three FIR against Bhujbal.
