The PMO had termed the allegations against Mr. Vadra as “false, vexatious and based on hearsay”

The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court on Thursday dismissed a Public Interest Litigation petition seeking a probe into allegations of irregular land dealings levelled against Robert Vadra by activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal.

A Division Bench of Justices Uma Nath Singh and Virendra Kumar Dixit dismissed the PIL filed October last year by Uttar Pradesh based social activist Nutan Thakur.

Dr. Thakur’s counsel Ashok Pandey had submitted that since the matter was related to people of high authority, only the Prime Minister’s Office would be able to probe it.
