Robert Vadra booked in land scam

A case was booked against Congress supreme leader Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law and businessman Robert Vadra, besides former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and others in an alleged land scam in Gurgaon.

The Haryana police has registered FIR against Vadra, Hooda and two companies – DLF and Onkareshwar Properties at Kherki Daula police station in Gurgaon.

Manesar Deputy Commissioner of Police Rajesh Kumar said that they registered FIR following a complaint they received from Surinder sharma, resident of Nuh, in which he alleged irregularities in the land deals.

Vadra and Hooda have now been booked under Sections 420 (cheating), 120 B (criminal conspiracy), 467 (forgery), 468 (forgery for the purpose of cheating), 471 (using as genuine a forged document) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), and Section 13 of the Prevention of Corruption Act, Kumar said.

Earlier, Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government had set up a commission in 2015 to probe into the licences given by the earlier Hooda-led Congress government for the development of housing colonies and commercial complexes in four Gurgaon villages. The Commission had confirmed large scale irregularities.
