The Maharashtra government has accepted the opposition demand for a CID probe into the alleged irregularities by former CEO of Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) Vishwas Patil, the Assembly was told today.
The demand was made by former chief minister Prithviraj Chavan (Congress) during the Question Hour in the Lower House.
Minister of State for Housing Ravindra Waikar said the government has accepted the demand.
Patil has since retired.
However, the Kunte committee's report later went missing, the minister said.
A complaint in this regard was lodged with the Nirmal Nagar police station in November last year, the minister said.
Chavan said this was a serious matter and sought a probe either by the ACB or the CID in the entire matter.
Waikar said the CID will look into the alleged irregularities under Patil.
