Bharadwaj raised the issue of the allotment and sale of the apartment in the Assembly on Friday. He questioned as to why Bassi was given the property at the rate at which it was offered to the original allottee, even though the law mandates a 24 per cent equalisation charge per annum.

The MLA alleged that Bassi's brother Ravi was obstructing the work of the Deputy Registrar of Societies, and he has also lodged a complaint in this connection. He has demanded a CBI probe.
