Indore: Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court on Wednesday suspected some mischief in RE-2 project and summoned building officer of Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC).

Hearing a petition by Santosh Meena, division bench comprising Justice SC Sharma and Justice Shailendra Shukla directed building officer Ashwin Janwade to remain present before the court on November 18.
