Action will be taken on Dhingra Commissions findings: Khattar
Action will be taken on the findings of Justice S N Dhingra commission that probed alleged irregularities in grant of land licences to a firm owned by Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Khattar said today.

He denied the Congress' allegation that the Commission's report was leaked and said the court should take cognisance of the matter.

His reponse came after a media report claimed that Vadra had been indicted by the Commission for making unlawful profits in a land deal in 2008.

Khattar noted that the court has not given permission to make public the report of the Commission, formed by his government after coming to power in October 2014.

The Commission was asked to probe alleged irregularities in grant of licences by the previous Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress government for development of colonies, housing societies and commercial complexes in four Guragon villages.

Vadra's Skylight Hospitality is among the firms under scanner.

"Once the report is made public and something comes out, it will be a matter of investigation," the chief minister said.

"Details" of the Commission's findings were published by a daily today which cited people familiar with the report.

According to them, "there was collusion aimed at benefiting Vadra's company".

The commission has sought an inquiry into properties bought by Vadra, Priyanka Gandhi's husband, and his businesses, it claimed. Reacting to it, Khattar said that if at all such a thing comes up, it will be a matter of probe.
