MoEF indicts politicians and senior officers in Haryana Forest Scam

The MoEF has indicted politicians and senior officials of the Haryana government for corruption and violation of environmental laws. It has also indicted the Centrally Empowered Committee (CEC) of the Supreme Court for going beyond its powers. The inquiry report had found embezzling of funds, violation of Supreme Court and Environmental Laws , hounding of a whistle blower and connivance to save the guilty. The CEC instead of prosecuting the guilty had asked the Haryana Government to deposit a sum of Rs 1 crore for destroying a wildlife sanctuary. The CEC has failed to respond to an RTI enquiry on the matter, which is more than two years old.
