Investigation into a land deal involving Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra has begun, an official said.

The investigation initiated on Monday is led by a one-man Commission of Inquiry (CoI), although Gurgaon joint commissioner of police Saurabh Singh has been attached to the inquiry commission for necessary assistance.

The transfer or disposal of licences, allegations of private enrichment and ineligibility of beneficiaries under the rules will be probed by the commission.

The report is expected to be submitted to the state government within the next six months.

“Retired Delhi high court judge SN Dhingra, who will probe the issue, visited his office for the first time and checked some papers and files related to Vadra’s land deal,” senior officials told IANS.

A meeting involving officials was held by Justice Dhingra at the newly set-up office in Civil Lines.

Issues pertaining to the grant of commercial licence to Sky Light Hospitality, a company owned by Vadra, will be conducted by him.

Vadra’s company was granted a commercial licence for 2.70 acres in Sector 83 (Shikohpur), Gurgaon by the town and country planning department in 2008.

Senior IAS officer Ashok Khemka as director general of consolidation of holdings had cancelled the mutation of 3.5 acres in Shikohpur on the Delhi-Jaipur-Mumbai National Highway 8.

The plot was sold by Vadra to realty giant DLF.

A report constituted by the then Congress government in Haryana had termed Khemka’s orders “inappropriate and without jurisdiction”.
