Adarsh will be with centre: SC
The 31-storey scam-tainted Adarsh housing society built at Colaba in posh South Mumbai for Kargil war heroes and war widows will not be demolished for the time being. The Supreme Court (SC) has asked the Centre to secure it after taking possession from the housing society by August 05.
The Bombay High Court had earlier issued an order on April 29 in which they had ordered the demolition of the building and had sought criminal action to be taken against those bureaucrats and politicians responsible for this.
However, a division court had later given some relief in the matter by giving a time of 12 weeks to appeal in the SC against this order, as was done later. In fact, the demolition was to be carried out by the Union ministry of environment and forests at the expense of the petitioners.
