Congress led Haryana government on Thursday gave approval for filing another chargesheet against senior IAS officer Ashok Khemka, who had cancelled the mutation of land deal between Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and DLF.
Khemka was the former Director General Consolidation and Inspector General Registration had blown the lid off the land deals done by Robert Vadra and has even cancelled the mutation of land in Gurgaon for which Vadra led company Skylinght Hospitality has entered into a deal with real estate major company, DLF in Haryana. Khemka had also ordered inquiry into the undervaluation of property in four districts adjoining national capital Delhi in the state that were bought by Vadra.
As per reports, Khemka who has been charged with administrative misconduct and exceeding jurisdiction, is likely to be given a major penalty under the service rules that reportedly entails dismissal from service.
Haryan’s Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had set up a three-member committee of three senior IAS officers to look into the issue after Khemka made these stunning revelation in October 2012 and he was transferred to non-significant department.
The state government’s committee’s report, without even giving Khemka a chance to clarify his stand, had indicted Khemka on charges of administrative misconduct and exceeding jurisdiction while giving clean chit to Robert Vadra in the land deals.
Further, the state government had rejected Khemka’s 105-page reply to committee’s report in which the senior IAS officials had highlighted some other alleged sham land deals associated with Vadra and some other influential people.
Haryana government has already filed a chargesheet had already been filed against the IAS officer on September 26, 2013.
