Following the Supreme Court's order asking the Centre to take possession of the Adarsh building, the Indian Army on Friday took over the building to ensure its security and prevent any encroachment.
The process was supervised by a Registrar nominated by Bombay High Court.
Earlier, the apex court had directed the Centre to secure the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society within a week and ensure that no demolition took place while securing the 31-storey Colaba building located next to defence installations.
The Adarsh scandal first came to notice in 2003 when it was reported that a highrise building was coming up in Colaba, close to military installations, overriding objections. The society which was promoting the venture had a large number of senior military officers, politicians and bureaucrats as its members, even though it was meant to be for war heroes.
