Robert Vadra land deal case: Justice Dhingra panel reports 'irregularities'

Justice SN Dhingra inquiry commission, which was set up by the Haryana government to investigate allegedly questionable land deals by Robert Vadra, has submitted its report to the Haryana government on Wednesday.

The enquiry commission has reported some irregularities in the deals and has indicted both Vadra and then Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

The commission reportedly found that Haryana officials manipulated rules to favour Vadra, son-in-law of Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi. According to CNN-News18, action is likely to be taken soon against people connected with the case, including Hooda, who are suspected of any wrongdoing.

The one-man inquiry commission was constituted on 14 May, 2015 under Section 3 of The Commissions of Inquiry Act, 1952. The investigation took under its ambit the role played by the Department of Town and Country Planning while allegedly favouring some companies, including those of Vadra, in Sector 83 of Gurgaon for developing commercial colonies.

Addressing a press meet on Wednesday, Justice Dhingra said that the report is the property of the Haryana government and the contents will only be made public if the government wishes so.

He added that his "mandate was to inquire about irregularities in grant of licenses." He further said that he has tried to bring to light the manner in which irregularities were committed and the people behind it.
