New Delhi: The Income-Tax department has started scrutinising the controversial land deals and financial transactions of firms owned by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law, Robert Vadra.
According to sources, the I-T has also issued a notice to the ‘principal officer’ of Vadra-owned Skylight Hospitality and summoned him on Friday.
Vadra’s firm is at the radar for transactions with realty giant DLF and procurement of a commercial licence.
The I-T, besides asking the transaction details with DLF, has also directed the Skylight Hospitality to produce agreements of purchasing and sale of immovable properties since 2005-06.
It has also sought details of Skylight Hospitality’s transactions with Onkareshwar Properties and cost of acquisition of commercial colony licences in Haryana.
Reports claimed that Skylight Hospitality held 3.53 acres of land in Manesar near Gurgaon and 470 acres in Bikaner, Rajasthan.
Recently a report published in Mail Today had claimed that land owned by Vadra, his companies and his wife, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, across Gurgaon, Faridabad, Mewat and Palwal districts of Haryana is estimated to be around 146.755 acres – which is beyond the prescribed limits.
