Court orders action against Mumbai Congress chief

Spelling trouble for Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh, the Bombay High Court Wednesday ordered police to file an FIR against him for corrupt activities and attach properties belonging to him and his family members  »

Mumbai: The homes and office of former city Congress chief Kripashankar Singh and his family were raided by Mumbai police's Economic Offences Wing and Special Investigation Team (SIT) in connection with corruption related cases, an official said Friday.

The raids, which started late Thursday, continued at the homes of Singh and his family members in Vile Parle and Bandra, as well as an office in Bandra.

The raids came barely 48 hours after Mumbai police registered a case against Singh and his family under the Prevention of Corruption Act and other charges, following a Bombay High Court order last week in a public interest litigation case, filed by social activist Sanjay Tiwari.

Details of the outcome of the raids were not immediately available.

Singh is reported to be away in New Delhi in connection with a case he is planning to file before the Supreme Court, challenging a Bombay High Court order.

Following the court directions, the SIT lodged a first information report at Nirmal Nagar Police Station, Khar, here Feb 29.

The SIT was directed to probe the assets accumulated by Singh and his family as per the allegations in Tiwari's PIL and the state Anti-Corruption Bureau's report of March 30 (2011).

Incidentally, soon after the high court order last week, Singh had resigned from the coveted post of Mumbai Congress chief.
