Lucknow, Sep 7, 2021 – The Vigilance department has filed a charge sheet against 57 accused in the Rs 1,410 crore monument scam that took place in Lucknow and Noida during the Mayawati regime.

Taking the charge sheet on record, special judge MP/ MLA court P.K. Rai, on Monday, fixed September 15 for the hearing on taking cognizance of offences against the accused.

The FIR in the case was lodged by inspector of vigilance department, Ram Naresh Singh Rathore, at the Gomti Nagar police station on January 1, 2014.
