The questioning was on at the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) headquarters here in south Delhi’s Lodi Road area since morning.

“Hooda is being questioned from 11 am in connection with his involvement in the irregularities in the allotment of 14 industrial plots at Panchkula by Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA),” said CBI spokesperson RK Gaur.

It is for the first time that Hooda is being quizzed in the case in which he is accused of releasing the orders of plot allotment while Chief Minister and HUDA Chairman.

The CBI recently had examined Union Public Service Commission member Chattar Singh, who was the then Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister, in connection with the case, registered by the agency in May 2016.

In its FIR, the CBI mentioned that industrial plots were given to 14 people by allegedly manipulating certain provisions of allotment which included allowing them to submit their applications even after the last date of submission ended.
