The commission probing Robert Vadra’s land deal case had been given more time. Retired Delhi High court judge Justice SN Dhingra says his report on the case was ready on Thursday. However, he received a new set of documents that needs to be examined and so the the date has been extended.

I felt the documents had to be analysed to add important content in the report. That is why I asked for more time. The documents are sale deeds, the person who gave them told them me they were benami.

Congress slammed the six week extension taken by Dhingra Commission. Party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said this is the first time in Independent India where a commission of enquiry has decided its own terms of reference and the government has accepted it without questioning.

BJP spokesperson Kailash Vijayavagiya said that Congress is trying to ruin the reputation of Dhingra to protect Vadra. On the other hand, AAP spokesperson Dilip Pandey said that the issue has turned political but it can’t be denied that Vadra is guilty.
