The court of Judicial Magistrate (First Class) M Y Doiphode on Tuesday issued summons to Brigadier Sanjeev Talwar (Corps of Engineers), ex-commander of station headquarters, Kirkee (Aundh), and Colonel Sharad Shukla, ex-commanding officer of Dunkirk Lines- Signals Regiment, Pune, to be present in court on September 20, 2012 in the Rs 800 crore Lohegaon defence land scam case.
City-based builder Harish Milani (57) has alleged in his complaint filed against the duo in court that they misused their authority to show a piece of private land as defence land.
Earlier, Kevin Pinto, who had purchased the land from Milani, as well as then Defence Estate Officer S R Nayyar and Milani were arrested by the CBI for allegedly cheating the Government of India in this matter. They face the charges of falsely claiming ownership of the 69.4 acres of defence land on Survey no 233-A in Lohegaon.
In his complaint filed in May, Milani has stated that based on the land ownership certificate of Dunkirk Lines (dated July 17, 2009), Sector 6, the land (79 acres and 3 gunthas) is not part of the said certificate.
The complaint categorically states, “Talwar misused his official position and prepared a forged land ownership certificate dated July 24, 2009, and included the said land as part of this certificate.
Thus the total area of land jumped to 150 acres and 24 gunthas. This was signed by Shukla and Talwar. They had forced the then DEO to sign the allegedly forged certificate.”
Earlier in this, case Milani had also filed a complaint in the court, alleging that CBI officials and Ramesh Govani, chairman of Kamala Mills Limited had conspired and created fabricated evidence to frame him in the matter. Milani has also demanded Rs 100 crore as compensation for the mental torture he has undergone.
Brigadier Sanjeev Talwar, ex-commander of station headquarters, Kirkee (Aundh), and Colonel Sharad Shukla, ex-commanding officer of Signals Regiment, Pune, to remain present in court on September 20. They had allegedly misused their authority to show a private land in Lohegaon as defence land.
