CHANDIGARH: After several failed raid attempts in the past few days, the Rajasthan Police has issued notices to two Haryana resorts seeking CCTV camera footage from July 10 onwards to establish whether they were housing 18 rebel Congress MLAs led by suspended deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot.

Sources, however, said the resorts are not likely to submit the details to the police as the managements argue that they do not fall under the jurisdiction of Rajasthan. The sources said the Rajasthan Police has served notices on ITC Grand Bharat at Tauru in Nuh and Best Western Country Inn in Manesar, directing both the resorts to submit the footage as well the booking records from July 10 onwards.

In case any room is booked in the name of suspended Congress MLA Bhanwar Lal Sharma, the resorts has to provide the details of check-in and check-out timings, payments, identity proof and parking. The SOG of the Rajasthan Police reportedly has enough evidence to establish that Sharma was staying at Country Inn and then shifted to ITC Grand for a few hours.
