According to an official Press release, Langah was booked under different sections of the Anti-corruption law for accumulating assets worth Rs.12.60 crores during his tenure as Minister for PWD (B&R) and Industries in the previous Akali Dal government.However, the authorities were tight lipped about the case against Kahlon.Both the former Ministers are known loyalists of former CM, Parkash Singh Badal.
According to sources, the Vigilance Bureau has served a week's notice, on both Langah and Kahlon and added that their arrest was necessary.This was done in compliance wit the directions of the High Court, which recently directed the State Government to issue a notice prior to arresting former ministers.Both Langah and Kahlon are among those former Ministers who had moved the High Court for anticipatory bail.
According to details provided by the Bureau, Langah who belongs to Gurdaspur district, had purchased 35 acres of land in five villages in his home district in the name of his family members.

Sukhbir Badal talks of 21st century governance but the manner in which the Badals, through their ever pliant Speaker, Mr. Nirmal Singh Kahlon, have reduced the status of this Vidhan Sabha to that of a minor inconvenience, just goes to show how much this administration has to hide.
Mr. Nirmal Singh Kahlon, Speaker of the Punjab Legislative Assembly
By repeatedly denying this facility to opposition MLAs and by not allowing constructive questions tabled over the past 5 years, the speaker, Nirmal Singh Kahlon has ensured that debate in this House was largely avoided.
Kahlon sahib may have many strengths but he has been singularly unable to display anything meaningful in the House.

The investigating agency had accused Kahlon of misusing his political position to illegally appoint over 900 panchayat secretaries during his tenure as Punjab's rural development and panchayat minister in the Akali Dal government 1996 to 2001.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court asked the CBI to probe this case in 2003, on a complaint from a senior official of rural development and panchayat department.
After conducting an independent inquiry, the CBI accused Kahlon and over a dozen officials, including three to four senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officials, in its over 50-page report.
The CBI had also written to the ruling Akali Dal government in March this year, seeking its permission to initiate prosecution of Kahlon but is still awaiting approval.
'We are waiting for the state government's approval for further action in the case,' a CBI official told IANS in Delhi.

A local court on Thursday acquitted ..., 19 Dec 2013 [cached]
A local court on Thursday acquitted senior Akali leader and former rural development and panchayat minister Nirmal Singh Kahlon in an 11-year-old case pertaining to the purchase of 103 JCB machines.
This is the second case in which Kahlon has been acquitted as the Punjab vigilance bureau (VB) failed to prove the allegations.
The JCB machines were purchased as per rules and regulations, but a false case was slapped against me owing to political vendetta," Kahlon told HT after the acquittal.
He added, "The court's verdict has reiterated what I had been maintaining for the past 11 years. I had all these years believed in the judiciary and that truth shall prevail."
In 2011, Kahlon was acquitted in the recruitment scam for lack of evidence. Both cases (JCB and recruitment) were registered by the VB after unearthing a 'scam' in the department of rural development and panchayats during the SAD-BJP regime (1997-2002) when Kahlon was the minister concerned.
The VB had on May 16, 2002, registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Prevention of Corruption Act against Kahlon and four others in connection with the JCB machine purchase in the department.
As per the allegations, the department had purchased 103 JCB machines at a cost of about Rs. 14 crore, but these were not used. Also, the machines were allegedly purchased at an exorbitant price (Rs 3-4 lakh each).
Speaking after the acquittal, Kahlon's counsel Satnam Singh Kler said, "Kahlon and the others were booked in a false case on fabricated grounds by then Congress government.
In December 2008, the Punjab vigilance bureau had moved an application seeking the closure of the case against Kahlon. In the application, the VB had said that the investigations into the JCB scam revealed that Kahlon, who was then the assembly speaker (2007-12), had no role in the case.
