"Searches are being conducted at four premises of IRB in Pune," a senior CBI official said on condition of anonymity without disclosing details.
A year before he was killed, Shetty had lodged a complaint with Pune police's crime branch about an alleged land scam involving IRB chairman Virendra Mhaiskar.
The CBI, which was handed over the probe by the Bombay High Court last year, had on October 24 conducted searches at 11 places in connection with the murder.
Shetty was killed as he stepped out of his house on January 13, 2010, at Talegaon Dabhade town in Pune district.
In 2009, Shetty had written a letter to the Pune police seeking protection as he was allegedly being threatened by Mhaiskar.
Shetty had alleged that IRB and its subsidiary companies with the connivance of bureaucrats prepared fake documents to claim ownership of government land.
The IRB group is said to have extended huge unsecured loans to Purti Sugar and Power Limited run by Gadkari. The company had bagged contracts from the Maharashtra government when Gadkari was Public Works Department minister in the state.
Did he kill just one activist? Dhoondo tho sekdo milenge. Har politician ko laashon ki dher par chadkar soneke mehel banaanehai.
Will there be a similar enquiry by CBI on Sonia and Rahul on corruption charges levelled by Swami and Kejriwal ? Unfortunately, any such enquiry may end up like 2G or CWG, etc ! It is for the SC to take suo motto action in this regard.
Really a strange controversial issue now from corruption to Murder charges against B.J.P. National President Mr Nitin Gadkari . Really seems the allegations motivated .
no prolemfor Nitin but who will bell Robert Vedara in Delhi with his mother in law and brother in law. Really any judge is available to trial a court against SONIYA & RAHUL .IF THE TRIAL IS CONDUCTED THEN BOTH WILL BE FREE NO TIME
There is a famous saying in Eelam that "one can trust a stomachache but not a North Indian". Now the world knows about the values of North Indian politicians that are full of corruption, crimes and crimes against humanity. There is no surprise that few BJP leaders and the UPA regime leaders have collaborating and entertaining the Sri Lankan Rajapakse regime that alleged to have committed the worst crimes against humanity and genocide of the 21st Century!
can you write in tamil the saying. i taught it was white people no t ni
the whole degradation of moral standards started with MK and his disciples. JJ, Vaiko, Ramdas, KV and others just follwed his style ! As for Rajapakse, why did you elect him back ? why don't you talk against China and Pakistan who actually participated in the decimation, instead of just harping on North Indians ??
Shiva, you are 100% correct , the Aryan lot is the number one enemy of Tamils
The entire scamsters have accumulated in our country from the topmost level to the Safi Karmchari. Was there anything wrong of Vadhras calling India as "BANANA REPUBLIC"? We need an army coup to protect our country from this political scamsters, the soonest the better, or may be the common man would be forced to pickk up arms to counter his biggest enimy, our govt and other opposition party and its leaders.
Don't you feel shame to be an Indian? You guys are voting these corrupt and criminals to power!
In spite of genocide, why have you elected Rajapakse ? Don't you feel ashamed ? It is the same way. For this reason, do not even think of splitting India.
what about you yaar? is not karunanidhi family and whole lot of others from your state indulging in llot which is there for all to see...For corruption, there is no distinguishing between a north indian and south india. Money is binding factor for all these people
Shekhar Gupta, How much did congress pay you to link whatever to Nitin? and for get Nitin, we see you are trying to create a wedge between Anna and Arvind also. Some time also try writing good for the country or some truth if I may say.
Dude accept the truth. What this article says is very truth. Anyone in Maharashtra will tell you that
So is the case with most of the scamsters . Recently one of them openly threatened an anti-corruption campaigner. Another one has got a citizen arrested by the police for a tweet.
the cup-board is open and the skeletons are falling out. money laundering and now murder.
