CNN-IBN has accessed the CBI report which shows that apart from Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary Neera Yadav, UP CM’s Mayawati’s brothers, senior bureaucrats and politicians also benefited in the Noida land scam.Former UP chief secretary Neera Yadav’s and industrialist Ashok Chaturvedi have been sentenced to four years in jail but more names have come up in the Noida land scam. CNN-IBN has accessed a CBI report which explains how this scam worked.The CBI report accessed by CNN-IBN that formed the basis of the chargesheet reveals a complex network of deals to benefit bureaucrats, politicians, Yadav’s family members and brothers of the present UP Chief Minister Mayawati.
The report shows how IAS officer Rajiv Kumar, who was deputy to Neera Yadav at the Noida authority, got a prime plot through a series of property deals.
In 1994, Rajiv Kumar was allotted a plot in a not so posh sector 51. But according to the CBI, Rajiv actually wanted a plot in the upmarket sector 14A that is home to top government officials.
So he changed its land use from a guest house to a residential accommodation to acquire it.
And interestingly all the file play happened in a single day.
The report also throws up details about Mayawati’s brothers Subhash and Anand kumar..
The report suggests how Neera Yadav helped Subhash by getting him a job as a carpenter in the Noida authority by relaxing the educational qualifications required to make him eligible to apply for a residential plot under the employee’s category.
A former cabinet secretary’s son was also able to acquire a plot of land in sector 44 by first buying a shop in Noida and then applying for a plot under the category of a shop owner.
The CBI report says Neera also used the shop route to help her daughters acquire prime plots in sector 44.
What is strange is that though the CBI report nailed Mayawati’s brothers and many other powerful people, their names never made it to the final chargesheet.
