NEW DELHI, Nov 2 (Agencies): The Supreme Court on Friday issued a notice to Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and her son Dushyant Singh for allegedly getting Rs 1.97 crore by selling government land to NHAI.
The apex court issued the notice after a petition was filed against the mother-son duo seeking registration of FIR.
According to the petition, Raje and Singh got a compensation of Rs 1.97 crore when they sold government land to National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) for widening a national highway in 2010. Raje was not a public servant during the time when the land was sold.
A bench headed by Chief Justice of India Justice Ranjan Gogoi sought a response from Raje, her son and others.
According to the petition, Raje was the leader of opposition in the Rajasthan legislative assembly.
The petition also claimed that the mother-son duo had allegedly illegally acquired ownership of a 567-square meter piece of land near the Dholpur palace in Dholpur town. The land was later sold to NHAI and had caused loss to the state exchequer.
A Rajasthan based lawyer, Srijana Shrestha, filed an appeal in the apex court challenging the Delhi High Court order which had dismissed the petition.
