No land records, but probe is on

haryana cm keen on seeing vadra case through

bric-3NO one in the Haryana government knew that revenue inquiries require khasra numbers, kila numbers and names of villages along with the sizra (map) of villages when terms and references were drafted for the one-man commission of inquiry to probe the land deal of Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra in Sector 83 (Shikohpur), Gurgaon. Retired Delhi High Court judge SN Dhingra, chairman of the one-man commission, pointed this out to the government. The Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar, had to travel to the US for work and had no time, so he called an emergency meeting in Haryana Bhawan, Delhi. A one-line resolution was passed unanimously to include the revenue records in the terms and references of the Dhingra Commission. It was sent immediately for gazette notification. With this resolution, the scope of inquiry has expanded to Sihi, Shikohpur, Kherki Daula and Sikanderpur Bada villages where Gurgaon’s Sectors 78 to 86 are now situated. The probe panel has also been asked to recommend “measures to take corrective action to prevent loss of revenue to the public exchequer and also prevention of undue private enrichment at the cost of the public exchequer in such cases in the future”. The role of officers in the grant of licences will also be looked into. It is surprising that the inquiry is being done only in those sectors whereas Vadra has purchased land across Haryana. What is the idea, Mr Dhingra and Mr Khattar?
