In a shocking revelation, its has been found that some of the challan files related to the H B Bhise scam have gone missing from the NMMC administration. This allegation was made by Opposition Leader Ramakant Mhatre. Under the Right to Information Act, NMMC Opposition Leader Ramakant Mhatre had asked for the challan files since 2003 related to H B Bhise from the NMMC Encroachment department. This however, led to a shocking revelation. It was found that files of H B Bhise from the year 2003-04 and 2004-05 were found from the Turbhe ward office while the other files starting from the year 2003 were not found in any of the other ward offices. Making some serious allegation, NMMC Opposition Leader Ramakant Mhatre has alleged that the missing files is a well planned conspiracy so that the H B Bhise scam is made weak in the court. Following this, Ramakant Mhatre has written a letter to NMMC Commissioner Vijay Nahata demanding that NMMC Encroachment Department’s former DMC NT Jadhav be charged for dereliction of duty. Mhatre alleged that N T Jadhav played an important role in the missing files case and if criminal charges are not booked against him then he would also drag NMMC Commissioner Vijay Nahata to court through Public Interest Litigation.
