Robert Vadra used fake documents to acquire land, claims IAS officer Ashok Khemka

Gurgaon: August 10, 2013(7STARNEWS) Senior IAS officer Ashok Khemka has told the Haryana government that entrepreneur Robert Vadra falsified documents and executed a series of sham transactions for the sale of a 3.5 acre land to real estate giant DLF for Rs. 58 crore.

Mr Khemka\'s 100-page report, submitted to the state government in May, says Mr Vadra used false registration documents for the 3.5 acre land in Shikohpur village of Gurgaon. The senior bureaucrat also alleges in his report that Mr Vadra\'s company, Sky Light Hospitality Private Limited, made no payment of Rs. 7.5 crore as mentioned in the land registration certificate.

Mr Khemka was the top man in the Haryana\'s Land Records department till last year. In October, he cancelled Mr Vadra\'s deal with DLF and ordered an inquiry to determine if the businessman, who owned property in different parts of the state, had been sold land at large discounts. He was controversially transferred three days later.

Mr Vadra is the son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, and is alleged to have received sweetheart deals from the Congress government, which has been in power in Haryana since 2004. A government committee in March, however, concluded Mr Vadra\'s deal with DLF in 2008 was fair and legal. In reply to the conclusions drawn by the committee, Mr Khemka\'s report says that the Haryana government had shown undue haste in commercial colony license to Mr Vadra.

\"The Congress will soon have to open a factory of clean chits the way it\'s going,\" BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi told NDTV.

Mr Khemka has alleged that unauthorised officials had signed off on the mutation of the land from Mr Vadra to DLF; he also raised questions about why the government appeared to have bent the rules for Mr Vadra, processing his Change of land use documents at lightning speed and licensing him to build a commercial housing project on his plot of 3.5 acres. That licence, granted just a month after Mr Vadra bought the land for Rs. 7 crore, added such dramatic value that just three months later, DLF paid 58 crores for the plot.
