A writ petition was filed in the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court on Monday seeking directions for an enquiry into the illegal land deal allegations levelled against Robert Vadra and realty major DLF.

In her petition, Uttar Pradesh based social activist Nutan Thakur mentions that she had sent a representation to the Prime Minister's Office on October 9 last year seeking enquiry into the same. However, when nothing happened, she filed a writ in the Allahabad High Court on March 3, 2013.

In an RTI response, the PMO then told Dr. Thakur that her representation was sent to the Law Ministry, after which she sent a fresh representation on March 22 to the Law Ministry asking for appropriate action. Even after this, the PMO or Law Ministry did not take any action and refused to provide information under RTI, she said. Dr. Thakur thus filed a fresh writ to enquire into the allegations made against Mr. Vadra.
