Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court Thursday reserved its order on a plea
seeking a probe into allegedly irregular land deals of Robert Vadra, son-in-law
of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, a petitoner said.
A division bench of Justice Uma Nath Singh and Justice V.K. Dixit reserved the
order after hearing the public interest litigation (PIL) petition of Nutan
Thakur and an affidavit filed by the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).
Thakur told IANS that she had sought a free and fair probe into the allegations
levelled by activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal against Vadra's
allegedly irregular land deals.
A lot of questions related to the deals between Vadra and real estate giant DLF
were yet to be answered and only a fair probe could clear the air, she said.
Additional Solicitor General Mohan Parasar opposed the plea and said the PMO
conducted a probe and found that the deals were purely commercial transactions
between two individuals.
He said the PIL was untenable and filed by Thakur to get publicity.
