Former IPL commissioner Lalit modi with his wife Minal were issued an order by court on alleged purchase of patrimony mansions in Amber at expandable prices during earlier government of Vasundhara Raje. According to the petition filed by citizen Sandeep Bhatra, additional district and session judge made their response through passing summons to them.
As havelis were state government property in 1966, the petitioner made his argument that the area of havelis were part of government which was declared in 1966. He claimed that Lalit Modi and his wife showed fake documents and purchased havelis. He even argued that the two haveli’s ‘Bairathi-ki-Haveli’ and ‘Chhabdon-ki-Haveli’ were still registered as properties of government. Sandeep Bhatra claimed that based on forged documents in 2005, Minal was produced as founding member of newly formed Amber Development and Management Authority.
Last month Enforcement Directorate flattered on the purchase of havelis which were allegedly obtained by Lalit Modi for Rs.9 Lakh and Rs.21 Lakh. Sources of ED the case was taken by the Congress government led by Ashok Gehlot in 2010 and sent to archaeology department. Petitioner’s lawyer A K Jain said, “Since Modi is not in India, the summons to him will be published in newspapers.”
