Corruption case against Digvijay Singh

The Economic Offences Wing has registered a case against Digvijay Singh and three retired IAS officers for providing undue benefit to the promoters of an Indore mall.

EOW has booked the former Chief Minister on the compaint of Ramesh Garg. The three retired IAS officers, UK Samal, AV Singh and DP Tiwari other than VP Kulshreshtha, Rakesh Sharma and Ashwin Janwade have also been made accused in the case.

When the Treasure Island mall was under-construction in Indore, the MG road was a residential locality as per the old master plan but permission for commercial activity was given for a plot of 90x30 sq metres.

Later officials fudged the records and the mall was constructed on the entire 90x120 sq metre plot. It was a joint project of Kalanis and Housing Board though the former were defaulters but just before completion of project, the HB Chairman cancelled the agreement that resulted in huge benefits to the Kalanis.

Digvijay Singh has said that the case was false and he was framed. The former Chief Minister said that the EOW case was nothing but a political vendetta.
