A CBI court here on Friday summoned former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and 33 others in Manesar land deal case for hearing on April 19.

The Central Bureau of Investigation had filed a chargesheet against 34 accused, including Chattar Singh, SS Dhillon, ML Tayal and Atul Bansal, promoters of Gurgaon-based real estate company ABW Builders, on February 2.

The agency had registered the case in September 2015 on the allegations that private builders in conspiracy with unidentified public servants of the Haryana Government had bought around 400 acres of land from farmers and landowners of Manesar, Naurangpur and Lakhnoula villages in Gurugram district at throwaway prices, showing the threat of acquisition by the government, during the period from August 27, 2004 to August 24, 2007.

ABW Builders had allegedly conspired with officers during the previous Congress government in purchasing around 400 acres from farmers of Manesar, Naurangpur and Lakhnoula villages in the district at throwaway prices.

The land whose market value at that time was more than Rs 1,600 crore was allegedly purchased for Rs 100 crore.
