New Delhi: A special CBI court will on Thursday hear the bail pleas of five of the nine arrested in the Adarsh Housing Society scam.
The five include TK Kaul, a former senior Army officer and four former senior bureaucrats, Pradeep Vyas, Jairaj Phatak, Ramanand Tiwari and PV Deshmukh.
The fresh bail pleas were moved after an interim report of the Adarsh judicial commission claimed Adarsh land belonged to the Maharashtra government, not the Ministry of Defence.
The Judicial Commission report on the multi-crore Adarsh scam was tabled in the Maharashtra Assembly on Tuesday.
Sources say that the report states that there's no clear evidence to show that the land belonged to Defence or that it was reserved for Kargil widows,
However, sources also say that Defence was in possession of land for an extended period.
