Mumbai, Apr 13 (IBNS) The Maharashtra government constituted two-member judicial commission investigating the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society scam will submit its interim report to the state government on Friday.

According to government sources, the commission is likely to include its findings on two crucial issues in the report.

The report will include the committee´s findings on the ownership of the plot in Colaba that was allotted to Adarsh and whether the land was for housing the Kargil war widows and war heroes or not.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) made several arrests in connection to the scam in recent times.

Sucked into the controversy over allotment of flats in the Adarsh Society meant for Kargil War heroes´ families to a clutch of bureaucrats and politicians in Mumbai, several politicians, including former Maharashtra chief minister Ashok Chavan, have lost their jobs or are facing probe.
