The one-man inquiry commission headed by Justice S.N. Dhingra looking into controversial Haryana land deals, including some linked to Robert Vadra, businessman and son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, submitted its report to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday.

Dhingra met reporters after submitting the report, but refused to reveal details, saying the report is now in government domain. While the contents of the report have not been made public yet, according to ‘Indian Express’, the report has found “gross procedural irregularities in allotment of licences”.

“I wouldn’t have submitted a 182-page report if there was no irregularity (in grant of land licences in Gurgaon),” Dhingra told reporters.

The one-man commission of inquiry was set up by the BJP government in May 2015. The commission was initially supposed to submit its findings by December 8, 2015, but its tenure was extended first by six months and later by three months.
