CBI sources here said that the agency approached Governor Vidyasagar Rao after it got "fresh evidence" against Chavan in the case. In December 2013, the then Governor K Sankaranarayan had refused sanction to CBI to prosecute Chavan in the Adarsh housing scam, leaving the agency with no choice but to close the case against him.
Chavan, who had to resign as Chief Minister after the scam surfaced in 2010, was among the 12 persons who were charge-sheeted by the agency in connection with the case.
