Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into tainted lands deals of Robert Vadra in Rajasthan reveal that the son-in-law of Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, bought land through his former bodyguard and the latter’s driver, by wiring money into their bank accounts, says this report in the New Indian Express. The CBI probe into the case is now focusing on Vadra’s use of such proxies for land purchases made in the Bikaner district of Rajasthan which brought him a profit of Rs 4.5 crore.

The bodyguard in question, Mahesh Nagar was earlier with the Delhi Police. His driver, Ashok Kumar is now missing.

The purchases through the bank accounts of both were made in 2010. Notably, from 2008-2013, Rajasthan had a Congress government under Ashok Gehlot.

According to the New Indian Express report, documents relevant to the investigations reveal ‘startling facts on alleged forgery of documents, land pieces passing through multiple hands, and use of ghosts and proxies to extract maximum profit in real estate business.’

The Enforcement Directorate, which is probing the money-laundering part of the crime, said that the evidence was sufficient enough for prosecution.
