CHANDIGARH: Justice S N Dhingra Commission, who is probing the grant of land licences to some companies including that of Robert Vadra’s in Gurgaon, today said he sought more time to submit the report in order to go through fresh documents from a person stating “that they are papers of benami transactions of who benefitted from the licence.”

Justice Dhingra said that he was ready with his report but he had to delay it in view of the fresh documents he has received from a private person.

“I was proceeding to submit the report (to the Haryana CM) but somebody came and gave a bunch of documents to me (in Gurgaon), saying these documents are of benami transactions of those who benefitted from the grant of licence.

“I started looking at these documents. After going through some of the documents, I found that this would require a little study and re-investigation. I sent a message (to the state govt) that in case you give me an extension I shall study the documents, make them part of my report otherwise I will come tomorrow and give the report,” Dhingra said.

In his letter to Manohar Lal Khattar government today, Justice Dhingra mentioned that he was about to proceed to Chandigarh for submitting the report when he received a bunch of sale deeds from a person who claimed that these documents were of “benami” transactions of those who benefitted from the grant of licenses.

After looking at these documents, he wrote that he was of the opinion that these documents need to be examined and studied in detail and would, therefore, require more time.

Dhingra also said that ever since the Commission was formed in May last year many people used to come to the office in Gurgaon and many of them gave documents.

“In those cases where I found that the life of person may be under threat, I did not even ask his name,” Dhingra said.
