Vadra land case: Ex-Haryana CM summoned

The Justice SN Dhingra Commission of Inquiry has asked former Chief Minister of Haryana to appear before it by March 23 to record his statements.

Last month, the Commission had summoned Haryana chief secretary Deepinder Singh Dhesi and officials of the private firms for recording of statement.

The commission has earlier examined retired IAS officer and member of Union Public Service Commission Chattar Singh, who was the principal secretary in Hooda's CMO.

Singh handled files of the town and country planning department in the chief minister's office.

After being set up by the BJP government in May 2015, the scope of the commission's inquiry was widened on Justice Dhingra's advice.
