In yet another major embarrassment for the Congress party, Goa state Anti-Corruption Bureau has filed a First Information Report (FIR) against senior Congress leader Chandrakant Kavlekar for allegedly amassing disproportionate assets to the tune of Rs 4 crore. The case pertains to Kavlekar in 2012 under various sections of Prevention of Corruption Act, taking suo moto cognisance of some media reports, which alleged his involvement in illegal allotment of plots. The ACB had started investigations against Kavlekar’s assets, including his properties in Kerala, in 2012 and submitted the preliminary inquiry report to the state government in 2013.
