Robert Vadra falsified documents for Gurgaon land: Khemka

Chandigarh: Senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Ashok Khemka has claimed again that Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra falsified documents to acquire 3.53 acres of land in Shikohpur village in Haryana's Gurgaon District.

According to reports, Khemka, while replying to a government-appointed inquiry committee that had indicted him earlier, said that the Vadra-DLF deal was worth Rs 58 crore, and that if all land scams in Haryana are taken into account over the past eight years, the value of scams could be between Rs 20,000 and Rs 3.5 lakh crore.

The reports revealed that Khemka has highlighted a series of sham transactions undertaken between Vadra's Skylight Hospitality company and DLF Universal Limited between 2011 and 2012.

In his reply, according to the reports, Khemka claims Vadra was favoured as he is the son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi.
Last year, Khemka, the senior Haryana cadre IAS officer, had alleged irregularities in the land dealings of Robert Vadra and DLF in the State, and had asked the State government to give him a copy of the inquiry reports conducted by it.

It led to a political hue and cry, but did not stop Khemka from seeking a response from the government on whether a cheque issued by Robert Vadra's company was a dummy cheque or not. He had said if the report had appeared in newspapers then he should also have access to it.

Khemka was transferred from Director General Consolidation of Land Holdings and Land Records-cum-Inspector General of Registration to his present posting in the State's Seed Development Corporation shortly after he initiated a probe into land dealings between Vadra and DLF.

A probe report submitted by four deputy commissioners in Haryana had given a "clean chit" to Vadra over his land deals.

The Prime Minister's Office in November, 2012 had told the Allahabad High Court that charges of irregularities in land deals against Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law were false, vexatious and based on hearsay.

It said that the petition was driven by a desire for publicity and seems to be actuated by political considerations rather than public interest.
