Probe agency may file FIRs in murky deal

The BJP government in Haryana may hand over further probe into the controversial land deals in four Gurgaon villages to an investigating agency, which could register FIRs based on the findings of the probe commission, it is learnt.

Justice (Retd) S N Dhingra on Wednesday submitted a report on the land deals, confirming irregularities in the grant of licences. But the missing link is that the report does not have any relevant statement from former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, under whose regime the licences were granted to private players. Although Hooda was summoned by the probe panel, he sent his advocate, saying the summons did not specify the accusations against him. 

The Congress had earlier trained its guns on Justice Dhingra, accusing him of seeking favours from the incumbent regime.

 Midway through the probe, on December 8, the former Delhi high court judge had urged the Gurgaon district administration to construct paver blocks connecting the trust’s pre-school, which was to be ready in 2016.
