Bhopal:The Madhya Pradesh High Court has issued notices to six leaders, including Congress MP Sandeep Dixit and BJP parliamentarian Sumitra Mahajan, in connection with the state Housing Board scam.

These leaders are alleged to have got flats allocated in their name by furnishing wrong information. A division bench comprising Justices Shushil Harkoli and Alok Aradhe has asked Dixit and Mahajan, why shouldn’t they be made a party into the case.

The HC order came after a PIL filed by two ex-DGPs --Arun Gurtu and Upendra Verma challenging the 20 per cent quota for the legislators and parliamentarians in the residential colonies constructed by the housing board in the state capital.

Filing an affidavit,the government said,under this quota houses are allotted to only those legislators, parliamentarians and their family members (wife/husband and sons) who do not own any residential house in any part of the State.

Sandeep Dixit and Sumitra Mahajan are alleged to own two to three buildings in the Capital.

The high court also issued notices to Sunil Jaiswal,Deoraj Singh,Gurucharan Singh and Arvind Bhadoria, besides Dixit and Mahajan.
