New Delhi: A Pune court adjourned the hearing of the case against Lavasa promoters on Friday. The court said it will hear the case on Saturday after scrutinising the application filed by the Maharashtra government.
The Maharashtra government initiated proceedings against Lavasa promoters in a Pune court, sources said on Friday. They claim that six officers and all nine directors of Lavasa including Ajit Gulabchand and Annirudha Deshpande have been named in the case.
They also said that the case proceedings will go under section 15 of Environment Protection Act.
Sources said that Supriya Sule has not been named in the case as she is only a shareholder.
No government official has been named, sources added.
Sources told CNN IBN earlier that public servants or bureaucrats, who were part of the Lavasa clearance, could be in trouble as the government is actively considering legal proceedings against them.
Work was suspended in November 2009 after the township was found flouting environmental norms.
Lavasa Chairman Gulabchand said on Tuesday that the state government is acting as an agent of the Environment Ministry.
