New Delhi: A firm linked to Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, has been issued fresh summons by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a land deal in Rajasthan allegedly used for money laundering when the Congress was in power.
The company Sky Light Hospitality had earlier been asked to submit financial statements and other documents.
The fresh notice came on a day Justice SN Dhingra, the former judge investigating Mr Vadra’s land deals in Haryana, was given time till August to submit his report. Justice Dhingra was to give his report to the state government yesterday.
Justice Dhingra is facing criticism for summoning neither Mr Vadra nor the “whistleblower” in this case, senior bureaucrat Ashok Khemka, who tried to cancel the land deal that’s been described as corrupt.
Justice Dhingra, sources said, has told Chief Minister ML Khattar that he has received new information that could help identify government officials who colluded in illicit land deals before the BJP came to power.
The former judge told NDTV on Wednesday that he had not asked Mr Vadra to appear in person because “private parties were sent questionnaires to which they responded”.
