New Delhi: CBI has not found any criminality in the permission given to the country's largest real estate company, DLF, to construct a high-rise luxury apartment complex in the vicinity of Rashtrapati Bhavan which had led to security concerns.

On the basis of a complaint received through the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) CBI had registered a preliminary enquiry (PE) against unknown officials of Urban Development Ministry in July last year.

The allegations pertained to conversion of land use from dairy farming to residential complex.

Highly placed CBI sources said today that after finding no criminality in the case, the enquiry has been closed.  

They said the change in land use was a policy decision on the part of the government and allegations that officials favoured a private builder could not be substantiated.  

The DLF had got the nod of the ministry to construct a four-storeyed luxury apartment complex on the land.
