Adarsh Housing Society flats in Mumbai were meant for the widows of the Kargil heroes.
But politicians' kin, bureaucrats and defence top brass got flats in the society.
The high-rise building was constructed in the posh Colaba locality, which is considered as a sensitive coastal area. The Adarsh Society allegedly violated the Environment Ministry's rules.
People who had nothing to do with the Kargil war reportedly got flats because they influenced in some manner or helped the construction of society by violating the rules.
Three former chief ministers, Sushilkumar Shinde, Vilasrao Deshmukh and Ashok Chavan of the state of Maharashtra were also involved in the scam. Ashok Chavan's mother in law own a flat in the society
