Maha ACB files chargesheet against Bhujbal and family members

Mumbai : The Maharashtra Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Wednesday filed a chargesheet in the Mumbai Sessions Court against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Maharashtra PWD minister Chhagan Bhujbal and his family members in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan construction scam.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had on February 1 arrested former lawmaker Sameer Bhujbal, nephew of Chhagan Bhujbal, in a money laundering case in Mumbai after the agency conducted multiple searches in connection with its probe against Bhujbals and others.

The Maharashtra ACB had earlier filed two FIRs against the Bhujbals and others under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) to probe the Delhi-based Maharashtra Sadan construction scam and the Kalina land grabbing case.

Bhujbal is being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in several cases of money laundering.

Series of raids have been conducted at the properties owned by Bhujbal and his family across Maharashtra in the last one and a half years.

Investigating agencies are also looking into alleged corruption in the award of contracts during his tenure as Maharashtra’s PWD minister. (ANI)
