Adarsh scam : Truth has prevailed, says Ashok Chavan after court rejects prosecution sanction against him

New Delhi, Dec 22 (IBNS) : Soon after the Bombay High Court rejected the  prosecution sanction against him in Adarsh Housing Society scam on Friday, senior Congress leader and former Maharashtra Chief Minister  Ashok Chavan said “truth has ultimately prevailed”.

Addressing a press conference in Mumbai, Chavan said,  “The truth has ultimately prevailed, we always had full faith in the country’s judiciary.”

Chavan also alleged that the issue was politically used by the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP)  to “malign” the image of the Congress.

Earlier in the day, the Bombay High Court ruled that the order passed by the Maharashtra Governor granting sanction to the CBI to prosecute Chavan in the scam cannot be sustained.

A bench of Justice Ranjit More and Justice Sadhana Jadhav quashed the Governor’s prosecution order.

The court was hearing a petition filed by Chavan challenging Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao’s decision granting sanction to the CBI to prosecute him in the Adarsh Housing Society scam. The bench had made Rao a respondent in the matter.

“The material which is required to be considered by the sanctioning authority is not limited to the evidence collected by the investigating agency during the course of investigation,” said Justice Ranjit More.

The court, however, held that such material must be admissible and capable of being converted to evidence which can be substantiated at the trial stage.
