Probe against BMC legal department over Rs 500 crore plot case
After the Supreme Court dismissed the BMC‘s special leave petition claiming rights over a prime 14,000 sqm plot in Jogeshwari (E), civic chief Ajoy Mehta has ordered an inquiry against the legal department. The plot is estimated to be worth Rs 500 crore.
“The case has been handled in a manner that it is detrimental to the interests of the MCGM. There have also been inordinate delays. The legal department working in the light of this case needs to be inquired into,” states the order. It is learned that the BMC-appointed lawyer was not able to reach the SC.
