CBI registers new case against ex-Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda in land scam, carries out searches at 30 locations

New Delhi:MNN:The CBI Friday registered a new case against former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and others over alleged irregularities in land allocation and carried out searches at 30 locations in Delhi-NCR, officials said.

The case is understood to be related to alleged irregularities in land allotment, sources said.

A team of officials from the agency arrived early morning at Hooda’s residence in Rohtak, Haryana, they said.

According to the officials, 30 locations in the Delhi-NCR region are part of the probe, the officials said.

The agency is tight-lipped about the details of the case as the search operation is underway.

After the raid, the ex-chief minister Bhupinder Singh said, “They can’t silence me with this action. This is a political vendetta against me,” Hooda said after the raid.

Speaking on the same, Dipendra Hooda, son of Bhupinder Singh Hooda said, “This is a political conspiracy against my father.”

The raid at the Congress leader’s Model Town residence in Rohtak started around 8:30 in the morning and is still underway, sources told.

Bhupinder Singh Hooda was present inside the house when the CBI sleuths arrived.

The investigative agency is simultaneously conducting raids at more than 30 places in Delhi and nearby areas in connection with the alleged land scam.

The Supreme Court had on November 1, 2017, ordered a CBI probe into the acquisition process for 1,407 acre and subsequent release of 95 % land. It is alleged that around 1310 acres of this land was given to private builders.

The raids come just weeks after Hooda was granted bail by a CBI court in Panchkula in a case pertaining to alleged illegal re-allotment of land to Associated Journals Ltd , which is the publisher of National Herald, in 2005.

Bhupinder Singh Hooda has been campaigning for Randeep Surjewala in Jind for the last few days for the crucial by-poll that will be held on January 28.
