Mumbai: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday could file the chargesheet of its probe into the Adarsh Housing Society scam, nearly two years after the scandal came to fore.

The 30-storey apartment, housing many top level defence officials, was built on a disputed army land at Colaba and it is alleged that the flats meant for the families of the Kargil martyrs were allotted to top defence officials and kins of politicians.

The CBI was supposed to file the chargesheet by June 15, but had asked for more time.

One of the closely awaited facets of the chargesheet will be whether it indicts former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan who had to resign in after he became one of the 14 people accused in the First Information Report (FIR) last year.

The CBI had alleged in its FIR that three of Chavan's relatives allegedly got flats in the society and the Chief Minister also granted building concessions by changing the area's development plan.
