The Haryana government is set to recommend a CBI probe against Ashok Khemka. The state government has accused the senior IAS officer of irregularities in awarding tenders for galvalume sheets, used for roofs in godowns, during his tenure as managing director of Haryana State Warehousing Corporation. The tenders worth over Rs 8 crore were awarded to a Gujarat-based firm.
CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda gave his approval for recommending the CBI probe against Khemka earlier this week. The state’s home department would now approach the Union Ministry of Home Affairs. “The CM has given his approval for the CBI probe. There is a standard procedure to initiate it and the state government will follow that. Multiple charges need to be investigated,” said S C Choudhary, Chief Secretary, Haryana.
When contacted, Khemka said, “I do not want to comment on the issue.”
Khemka had made headlines when he cancelled the mutation of a land deal between M/s Skylight Hospitality Ltd, a company owned by Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra, and DLF Universal Ltd in Shikhopur village.
