NEW DELHI: The Maharashtra government on Monday filed in the apex court its report on the investigation into the alleged amassing of wealth by former Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh and his family members.

The report was placed in a sealed cover by the Special Investigating Team (SIT), headed by Mumbai Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik, that probed into the alleged benami assets of Kripashankar and family.

The report was filed in compliance with the apex court order, dated March 13, wherein the court had asked the police commissioner to conduct an independent investigation and collect documentary evidence with regard to all movable and immovable properties of Kripashankar and his family members.

Earlier, a Bench comprising Justice H L Dattu and Justice A R Dave had declined to stay the investigation against Kripashankar and family, but issued an interim stay order on the attachment and seizure of the property allegedly acquired illegally.

Kripashankar and family had sought a stay on the Bombay High Court order directing the police to prosecute them for criminal misconduct under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
