Relief for Hooda, HC restrains Hry from publishing Dhingra report

Friday, 11 January 2019 | PNS | Chandigarh

In a relief to former Haryana Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday has restrained the Haryana Government from publishing the report of the Justice Dhingra Commission of Inquiry into the land scam in Gurugram.

A division bench of High Court, which saw the sealed copy of the report, said that the Commission’s report could not be implemented as such.

The High Court has, however, said the government had enough material to set up the Commission and there was no illegality and malafide intention in the decision.

The bench has referred the matter to the Chief Justice of the High Court for further action. The Dhingra Commission was set up in 2015 to probe grant of licences for development of commercial colonies in Gurugram, including those of Robert Vadra and DLF. The judges of the bench — Justices Anupinder Singh Grewal and A K Mittal — have differed over the issue of the future of the Commission and its report.
