A CBI team on October 17 questioned senior IAS officer SP Singh at his Prashasan Nagar residence in connection with the Emaar scam.

The premier investigating agency believes that Singh, while he was the principal secretary, Municipal Administration and Urban Development, reportedly gave certain exemptions to Emaar group, allegedly at the behest of his political bosses.

Singh, presently principal secretary, Roads and Buildings, is understood to have told the CBI team that there was no wrongdoing on his part and he even showed some photocopies of various decisions taken during his tenure in MAUD.

‘’We have questioned him and if required, we will question him again,’’ sources said adding that he was also asked about the plush villa his wife owns in Emaar-Boulder Hills township
