A resident of Gurugram named Surendra Sharma of the Rathiwas village had filed an FIR against Robert Vadra, Bhupinder Hooda and others in September 2018, alleging that Vadra’s firm Skylight Hospitality had bought 3.5 acres of land in Shikohpur village (Now Sector 83) in Gurugram from one Omkareswar Properties for 7.5 crores in 2008. The FIR had alleged that massive irregularities had happened in the deal and Hooda had favoured Vadra costing the exchequer huge losses.

Vadra’s Skylight Hospitality had allegedly sold the land to DLF for a massive 58 crores in the same year.
In February this year, Hooda and 33 others were charge-sheeted by the CBI in the 1500 crore Manesar land deal case.
Vadra is also facing probe in land grab cases in Rajasthan.
In the Gurugram land grab case, the FIR is registered against Vadra, Hooda and others under sections 420(cheating), 120(hatching conspiracy), 467,468 and 471(forgery) of the IPC.
The Justice SN Dhingra commission set up by the ML Khattar government in 2015 had probed the allegations of scams in the grant of licenses under the Hooda government that favoured certain companies including Vadra’s firm to develop colonies in Gurugram.
