The APMC Police investigations seemed to have slowed down in the case of the allotments done to fake Mathadis in the Ghansoli’s CIDCO Mass Housing Project. It may be recalled that we had aired a report on December 24, 2008 on how the 1500 houses allotted for the Mathadis by CIDCO had been surrounded with allegations of corruption. It had come to light that nearly 1500 homes that had no takers allegedly led to one Babasaheb Varade issuing fake Mathadi identity cards to non-Mathadis and getting the vacant apartments allotted to them. Shinde further alleged that the 1500 houses are allotted to applicants who are teachers, police officers and bus conductors who are not at all included in the APMC market. Government rule states that the house is exclusively for the Mathadis of APMC. When the scam came to light, a case was registered at the APMC Police Station. And the accused was Babasaheb Varade was arrested. At that time reliable sources had alleged that when Babasaheb Varade had found out about his impending arrest, he allegedly got himself admitted in the hospital to fool the police that he was unwell but we had exclusive visuals of Babasaheb Varade looking fine as he spoke on the phone and ate hotel food. This time when NMTV News met the investigating officer of the case PI Kadam he refused to speak on camera saying that the matter is subjudice. He however confirmed that they were investigating the matter. However, now if you take a close look at these visuals, they allegedly show a police constable standing with the brother of Babasaheb Varade – Gyanesh Varade. The constable is the same as the one seen in the visuals of the hospital where Babasaheb Varade was admitted. And now if you take a look at these visuals you can see Babasahev Varade’s brother Gyanesh Varade walking with PI Kadam sharing some friendly moments. These visuals put a question mark on the fairness of the investigations being done in the case that has become a matter of justice for Mathadi workers’ housing needs. Bureau report – NMTV News.
