The Vigilance Bureau has arrested former minister Sunder Sham Arora, who was jailed for bribery, in the industrial plot scam by bringing him on production warrant. Vigilance produced him in Mohali court on Thursday. In the court, the investigating officers argued that the former minister was one of the main accused in the plot scam. Eight have been arrested so far.
The former minister and other accused have to be interrogated by sitting face to face. After hearing all the arguments, the court sent the former minister on one-day remand. In response to a question asked by reporters outside the court, former minister Sunder Sham Arora said that the state government was pushing. Action is being taken with a sense of revenge. On the plot scam, he said that he has full faith in the judiciary. Soon the whole truth will come out.
Vigilance measured the place
On Thursday, the Vigilance team again visited the site in Industrial Area Phase-IX, where the company was given space to build a township. Vigilance measured that place. All the records have been collected. According to sources, Vigilance does not want to leave any loophole in this case, because the CM is directly monitoring this case. Vigilance officials also share every update related to this case with the CM’s office. Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has the responsibility of this department only.
