Vigilance sent questionnaire to Dhumal in HPCA land case

Seeking clarification on the role of former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal in dismantling of residential quarters of the Education Department to make way for the HPCA Dharamshala stadium, the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau has sent a questionnaire to him and given two weeks time to file reply on it.

Earlier, on April 9, Vigilance had submitted a supplementary chargesheet and sought permission from the Home Department to prosecute senior IAS Officer Kamlesh Panth and four other officers for their alleged role for giving permission for demolition of the building.

The vigilance had registered case against the HPCA in October 2013 for demolishing the residential quarters of the Education Department after illegally declaring them unsafe and occupying big chunk of its land. The HPCA and district administration are accused of declaring the structure as unsafe without even getting a survey done to ascertain its condition.
