Rejecting the demand for a probe into the allegations made by civil society activists against Robert Vadra, Union Law Minister Salman  Khurshid on Saturday said instead of making baseless allegations they should approach an agency with an affidavit for a probe.

 A day after Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan levelled charges against Vadra, Khurshid told mediapersons here on the sidelines of the Odisha Literary Festival organised by ‘The New Indian Express’ Group that if an inquiry is to be ordered, it should be against them who have made such baseless allegations.

Stating that it was ‘shameful’ to blame someone for political gains, Khurshid said even the documents produced did not establish that Vadra was given any unsecured or interest-free loan.

The papers suggest he was given the property in lieu of the property sold by him which can be done by anybody rightfully, he said.
