New Delhi: The Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress on Tuesday challenged the closure of nine cases in the alleged Rs 70,000 crore irrigation scam involving Ajit Pawar in the Supreme Court.

On Monday, the Maharashtra’s Anti-Corruption Bureau stated that cases closed were not related to Ajit Pawar, who was on Saturday sworn in as deputy CM.

 

The joint petition by the three parties described it as a “clean chit” and said the move to close cases was illegal. It also seeks a stay on the ACB's move to close the cases and also urges the top court to restrain Fadnavis from taking any such decisions till the floor test is completed.
