CBI special judge D R Mahajan last week rejected an application filed by Lohegaon land scam prime accused Haresh Milani against four persons, including a CBI officer and a lawyer, on the ground that the plea was filed to harass the investigation officer with "ulterior motive".
Builder Milani, who has been chargesheeted in the case, alleged in his application that Mumbai-based builder Ramesh Govani, his partner Mahendra Shah, CBI inspector N M Parab and CBI special prosecutor Vivek Saxena had falsely implicated him. Milani allegedly cheated defence authorities and falsely claimed about 69-acre defence land worth Rs 800 crore in Lohegaon.
According to Milani's complaint filed in July this year, Govani and Shah had allegedly prepared forged documents to grab the Lohegaon land. While Parab prepared the chargesheet with ulterior motive to save the duo and falsely implicate Milani, Saxena being the public prosecutor supported them in the court.
During the hearing, the court observed certain discrepancies in Milani's version. Even as Milani alleged that Govani, along with defence estates officer Sevan Nayyar, had forced him to execute the agreement, he had not complained against him anywhere and had not taken any action in respect of the said agreement.
