Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi owns Sky Light Hospitality is in deep trouble. The company has been listed as one of the seven private companies named in a money-laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with 18 land grab cases filed in Rajasthan. This firm has allegedly acquired 470 acres in Bikaner. Discarding the allegations, senior Congress spokesperson Shakeel Ahmad said that there is no glitch in Vadra’s land deals and the ruling government is making a mountain out of a mole.
It has been reported that Vadra’s firm had acquired land in Kolayat and Gajner villages. It is alleged that the government land was transferred to individuals on forged documents in connivance with revenue officials. State police registered 18 cases alleging serious irregularities in the allotment and sale of the land in the month of August in 2014. In the probe done by the police showed that the alleged mastermind, Jay Prakash Bangarwa, connived with revenue officials to create fake transfer of ownership. Fake papers were used to acquire the land meant for rehabilitation of displaced people. Most of the “illegally” acquired land was sold to accused companies in 2009.
As a whole, 7 people including Bangarwa and 3 revenue officials have been confiscated for their alleged role in the cases.
