Rajasthan Police gives clean chit to Robert Vadra: Reports

JAIPUR: In a major relief to Robert Vadra, Rajasthan Police has given a clean chit to Sky Light Hospitality, which is promoted him, reports HT. Police have also said that the company was a victim of ‘conspiracy’ and ‘cheating’ and that Vadra was a ‘victim of fraud’.

According to police probe, which was incidentally ordered after Vasundhara Raje became CM in 2013, papers were forged and government land was sold to Vadra’s firm. Vadra, who is son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi has been accused of land grabbing in Haryana and Rajasthan, and this clean chit will certainly be a shot in the arm for him as far as fighting negative perceptions about him is concerned.

According to HT, 69.55 acres of land was bought by Sky Light Hospitality Pvt Ltd in 2010, which it subsequently sold off to another company. Rajasthan Police’s report has named nine individuals of which six have been arrested so far. The police report also says that Vadra was not aware of the land purchase.

Rajasthan Congress MLA Bhanwar Singh Bhati dubbed the entire probe as a ‘publicity show’ that ended as a ‘flop show’.
