New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation filed charge sheet against former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Congress leader Motilal Vora and Associated Journals Ltd in a land allotted case in Panchkula.

The CBI had alleged that AJL was allotted a plot in Panchkula in 1982 on which no construction took place till 1992. HUDA then took back the possession of the plot.

It was alleged that the then chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, also the then chairman of HUDA, re-allotted the same plot measuring 3,500 square metre at original rates plus interest in 2005 by allegedly violating the norms.

Hooda, in violation of the rules and by misusing his official position, re-allocated land to the New Delhi-based Journals company at original rates and ordered construction on the plot within six months, seeking completion of the same within two years. This led to an alleged loss of Rs 62 lakh (approx) to the Haryana government.
