CBI raids 4 sites in Haryana mall case

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, August 10

The CBI today carried out searches at four locations in Delhi and Haryana after filing a case of illegal conversion of residential land to raise the swanky Ambience Mall in Gurgaon, officials said.

The CBI has registered an FIR on the orders of Punjab and Haryana High Court, which had termed the mall illegal. The HC had sought a separate investigation by the CBI to probe alleged illegal actions, if any, and possible collusion between the builder and state authorities.

Located adjacent to the Delhi-Jaipur national highway, the mall had come up on land originally allotted for a housing project. Those raided included directors of real estate firm Ambience Group, said officials.

The officials said the HC had asked the CBI to register the FIR within six weeks from July 10, submit status report in three months and complete probe in six months.

The petitioners had alleged before the HC that 18.98 acres earmarked for Ambience

Lagoon Island Residential Complex was reduced to 7.9 acres with a commercial complex erected on the remaining land. They had alleged that such violation of the builder-buyer agreement and provisions of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Area Act, 1975, could not have been possible without the collusion of officials and builders.

The Ambience Group runs malls in NCR and luxury hotel The Leela Ambience Convention Centre.
