Navy Chief Admiral Nirmal Verma was today evasive on whether the controversial Adarsh Housing Society building was a security threat, saying issues such as ownership of land and violation of environmental regulations were also attached to it.
"There are many more issues involved in it with respect to the very title of the land and violation of environmental regulations," he told reporters here.
The Navy chief was asked if the building was a security threat.
Refusing to comment on Environment Ministry's recommendation to demolish the scam-tainted building for violating coastal regulations, Verma said, "These are issues under the purview of court and civil administration."
The 31-storey building in the upmarket Colaba area is allegedly constructed on defence land and has been termed as a security threat by the Western Naval Commander also.
A CBI probe is already under progress and it is looking at the role of senior retired and serving officers, including three former Services chiefs.
