New Delhi, Aug 10: With IAS officer Ashok Khemka making fresh allegations in Robert Vadra land deals in Gurgaon, BJP on Saturday demanded an explanation from Congress and demanded a thorough probe into charges of "falsification" of documents.



Khemka on Saturday charged Vadra "falsified documents" for 3.53 acres of land in Gurgaon and "pocketed" large premium on a commercial colony licence.

BJP said as charges of "falsification" have come to light, it calls for a proper investigation.

"Whatever facts have come to public domain, it is a serious issue. Congress owes an explanation. This is not a private matter. When there are charges of falsification, it needs to be properly investigated," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

In an apparent reference to Congress president Sonia Gandhi coming out in support of suspended UP IAS officer Durga Sakthi Nagpal, Javadekar said "you can't apply two rules for different people".

He said, "If charges are for falsification and are serious, it calls for a proper investigation."

In his "voluminous reply" submitted to Haryana government's three-member inquiry committee set up in October last to look into Vadra-DLF deal, Khemka is understood to have alleged that Vadra, who is Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law, executed a series of "sham transactions" for 3.53 acres of land in Shikohpur village of Gurgaon.
