FIR filed against Robert Vadra in the Gurugram land deal case

A fresh FIR has been lodged against Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s brother in law Robert Vadra, former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and others for alleged irregularities in the land deals in Gurugram. The case was filed after a resident of Rathiwas village in Gurugram, one Surendra Sharma, filed a complaint alleging huge losses to the exchequer because of the deal. Sharma has alleged that Vadra’s company Sky Light Hospitality, with a registered capital of Rs. 1 lakh in 2007 and 2008, bought 3.5 acres of land in Shikohpur village (now sector 83) from Onkareshwar Properties for Rs. 7.5 crore.

Vadra has been under the cloud of controversy since the shady land deals in Haryana and Rajasthan have emerged. Earlier, Rajasthan government had ordered probe in the land deals and had even recommended a CBI probe in the controversial land deals executed by a company allegedly owned by Vadra.

In December last year, the ED had arrested two people in the Bikaner land scam case involving Vadra under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The ED had registered a criminal complaint regarding the matter in 2015 after taking cognisance of state police’s FIR based on local tehseel’s allegations of a forgery in the Skylight’s purchase of 275 Bigha land in Bikaner’s Kolayat area. Earlier this year, the ED had attached land of one Jaiprakash Bagarwa, who is believed to be a close aide of Vadra.

Meanwhile, Robert Vadra has defended himself by claiming the FIR against him is because of ‘election season’ and it is to divert the attention from increasing oil prices by bringing in a ‘decade old’ case.

The case has been registered under various sections like IPC 120-B (Criminal Conspiracy) , 420 (Cheating), 467 (Forgery), 468 (Forgery for purpose of cheating) , 471 (using as genuine a forged document) and Section 13 of Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 (Criminal Misconduct by a public servant) in Khedki Daula police station of Haryana.
