The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday raided the residence of former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda along with 19 other locations in a land allotment case, officials said.
The searches were also carried out at the residences and offices of Hooda&’s close aides in Rohtak, Gurugram, Panchkula, Chandigarh and Delhi.
The development comes following the Dhingra Commission&’s report which pointed to irregularities in grant of licences and land allotment in prime areas to individuals and companies, including Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra and his firms.
The 182-page report has indicted the previous Congress government (2005-2014) in Haryana led by Hooda, for irregularities in grant of licences. It has pointed to alleged connivance of the Hooda government in favouring Vadra and others.
