The Haryana government has filed in the Supreme Court the Justice S N Dhingra commission's inquiry report that relates to alleged irregularities in land deals, including some linked to Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra. The state government filed the report in pursuance to the apex court's April 12 direction for submitting the copy of inquiry report in a sealed cover. The report was submitted before a bench of justices A K Goel and U U Lalit, which has been adjudicating a batch of appeals relating to acquisition of land and its allocation to various private parties for residential and commercial establishments. The one-man Justice Dhingra commission, which had given its inquiry report to the Haryana Government in August last year, had probed the alleged irregularities in granting of licences to developers in four villages of Gurgaon by the previous Congress government. The report given by former Delhi High Court judge Justice S N Dhingra, which is yet to be made public, has reportedly also examined charges of irregularities against Vadra, whose company was at the centre of a probe. The bench was informed by the amicus curiae last week that the commission's inquiry report was submitted to the Haryana government but it has not been published following a statement made by the state government in some proceedings pending in the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Thereafter, the apex court had summoned the Justice Dhingra commission report to take note of it before passing the final order in the matter. It had given four months to CBI to complete its probe in connection with alleged illegalities in granting licences for commercial and residential establishments in the four villages.
On March 21, the bench passed an interim order of status quo.
