Chandigarh, Dec 28: A Haryana government-appointed committee, that probed the orders of senior IAS officer Ashok Khemka cancelling the sale of over 3 acre of land to realty major DLF in a deal with Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, today submitted its report.

The 3-member committee, headed by Additional Chief Secretary (Revenue) Krishan Mohan, submitted its report to Haryana Chief Secretary PK Chaudhary here. Chaudhary told PTI that the committee's report has been received but declined to divulge its contents. "It is being examined," he added. Krishan Mohan was not contactable despite repeated attempts. Khemka, as the then Director General Consolidation of Holdings and Land Records-cum-Inspector General of Registration, had ordered cancellation of the land deals.

Khemka had a day after his transfer on Oct 12 and three days before he actually relinquished charge asked Deputy Commissioners of four districts of Gurgaon, Palwal, Faridabad and Mewat to "inspect all documents registered from 2005 on behalf of Vadra or his companies in the capacity of vendor (seller) and vendee (buyer)." An official probe had earlier concluded that there was no "undervaluation" or loss of revenue to the government in the land deals involving Vadra or his companies.

The Deputy Commissioners of the four districts had also reported to the state government that an inspection of all documents registered in their respective districts from Jan 1, 2005 on behalf of Vadra or his companies, showed there had been no undervaluation in the registration deeds.
