Robert Vadra's land deals: Delhi High Court dismisses PIL seeking CBI probe

Court dismisses plea on Vadra's lands
New Delhi, Sep 16: Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra might heave a sigh as the Delhi High Court has dismissed a petition seeking a CBI probe in his land deals.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice R.S. Endlaw rejected the public interest litigation filed by advocate M.L. Sharma.

The petitioner sought a probe into the Vadra lands by the CBI under charges of cheating, forgery, criminal conspiracy and Prevention of Corruption Act. He claimed that this is a scam worth Rs 20,000 crore.

The PIL also cited media reports to claim that the current CAG, Shashi Kant Sharma, issued a letter to stop a CAG audit/enquiry into the Skylight Pvt Ltd within a fortnight of succeeding Vinod Rai as the chief auditor of the country.

Skylight is a company based out of Sukhdev Vihar. It is allegedly owned by Robert Vadra and his mother Maureen Vadra.

A PIL was filed seeking probe into the sale of agriculture land to Vadra's companies. A probe into grant of licences to change the land use of agricultural plots purchased by Vadra's companies in Haryana was also sought.

The petitioner had also filled a PIL seeking the cancellation of Sharma's appointment as the CAG.
