NEW DELHI: The CBI on Wednesday registered a PE (Preliminary Enquiry) to probe alleged bungling in the purchase of CWG Village flats from Emaar MGF at higher prices, thus causing a loss to the tune of Rs 100 crore. The agency will probe the role of Lieutenant Governor Tejinder Khanna, also the ex-officio chairman of Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the then DDA and Urban Development Ministry officials and senior officials of the construction company. It will find out whether the decision to purchase flats was taken on the basis of “administrative” reasons or whether there was some kind of vested interest in the decision. After the primary investigation, an FIR will be registered against the accused. The CAG, in its audit report on Games Village, had pointed out several irregularities, including the decision of the DDA to purchase “additional” flats at higher rates, to bail out Emaar MGF. The Shunglu Committee had also detailed on the flaws in the decision to purchase more flats at higher rates.
