NEW DELHI (TIP): IAS officer Ashok Khemka, who questioned land deals involving Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra, has been served a fresh chargesheet by the Haryana government. The state government has asked the bureaucrat to respond to the chargesheet, served last night and received by his son, within 15 days. Khemka has been booked for the violations of sections 3,5,6 and 8 of the All India Service Rules, said a govt official.
Khemka shot into news after he cancelled a land deal between DLF and a company owned by Robert Vadra in 2012. Two chargesheets have already been filed against Khemka — one for administrative misconduct in cancelling the mutation and the other for low sale of wheat seeds during his tenure in the Haryana Seeds Development Corporation (HSDC).
