Jaipur: The Rajasthan Government on Tuesday rubbished reports of a clean chit being given to Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra in the Sky Light Hospitality case and said that the investigation in this regard was still on.
“There is no clean-chit given to Robert Vadra. There is no such report. The investigation is still underway, we are awaiting the result. We can’t say anything until then,” Rajasthan’s Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria told the media here.
Reports earlier suggested that the Rajasthan Police has given a clean chit to Vadra-promoted Sky Light Hospitality in a land grabbing case, saying the company was a victim of ‘conspiracy’ and ‘cheating’ as grabbed government land was sold to it.
A leading daily published a report, saying the police investigation in a case lodged by the Vasundhara Raje Government in 2014 found that 69.55 hectares of land was sold to the company promoted by Vadra on the basis of forged papers.
Several cases were registered by the Bikaner Police in the alleged land grab case and four of them were related to the land sold to Sky light Hospitality Pvt Ltd.
The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the Centre had earlier accused Vadra of grabbing land in Rajasthan and Haryana when the Congress was in power.
