Shimla, Sept 20
According to a media report the CBI team has conducted searches in the CPWD and the Advanced Study office of the Central Government and seized some documents. Though yet unconfirmed by authorised officials, but this action may have been centered around allegations of financial irregularities and rigging in the construction of a tennis court at the Advanced Study Institute.
As per the vernacular media report a tennis court has been built in advance study at a cost of about Rs 52 lakh, whereas only Rs 10 to 15 lakh has been spent on the spot.
