Supreme Court Notice To Vasundhara Raje, Dushyant Singh In Land Deal

Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and her son Dushyant Singh have been issued a Supreme Court notice for allegedly receiving compensation of Rs 1.97 crore by selling government land to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) in 2010. The plea filed by Rajasthan-based lawyer Srijana Shresha seeking a CBI probe against the duo has been agreed for hearing.

Raje, her son and the CBI have been issued the notice by a three-judge bench comprising CJI Ranjan Gogoi and Justices K M Joseph and Hemant Gupta seeking their response within four weeks.

The Rajasthan CM and her son claimed ownership of a 567-square meter property near Dholpur Palace and in turn sold it to the NHAI for Rs 1.97 crore to widen a national highway, causing loss to the state exchequer. Raje was Leader of Opposition in the Gujarat Legislative Assembly at that time.

Delhi High Court had dismissed the plea and a CBI probe on August 8 after which the petitioner moved the SC.
