The two-member judicial commission probing the Adarsh housing society scam has summoned former Chief Minster Ashok Chavan again for recording evidence. Mr. Chavan, who has deposed before the commission earlier, will be called again to give evidence regarding the membership of the society.
With five witnesses remaining to be examined, the judicial panel will begin hearing the final arguments in the case from October 15.
Society members were asked to remain present in court on Friday while the panel, comprising retired judge J.A. Patil and former bureaucrat P. Subramanium fixed the date for arguments.
The commission has not yet finished recording the evidence. On Friday, Ramanand Tiwari, former Urban Development secretary and Jairaj Phatak, who is an accused in the CBI FIR, moved an application for the examination of Satish Dhupelia, who was on the high rise committee of the Mumbai civic body.
As per the charge against Mr. Phatak, a former municipal commissioner, he had allegedly allowed the height of the Adarsh building to be raised beyond 100 metres without the approval of the high-rise committee of the municipal body.
Earlier on Thursday, C.V. Oak, former Mumbai Collector, told the Commission in his deposition the society had not fulfilled conditions for issuing the Letter of Intent and Letter of Allotment.
