Haryana Finance Minister and his judge sister bent norms for land deal: probe

Both Justice (retired) Nirmal Yadav and her brother Captain Ajay Singh Yadav, who is Haryana’s Finance Minister, used “their influence” to purchase 11.01 bighas (just over 2 acres) in Solan, Himachal Pradesh, on August 14, 2008 by putting pressure on Panchkula Tehsildar Satish Kumar to issue residence certificates without proper documentation.

That’s not all. Four months before she bought the Solan plot, Justice Yadav, then with the Punjab and Haryana High Court, decided a property case in favour of one Rakesh Bhargav whose wife Anita Bhargav was one of the 18 “co-purchasers” of the Solan land.

The other co-purchasers include Captain Ajay Yadav, his wife Shakuntala, son and daughter Chirnjiv and Latika and Delhi businessman Ravinder Singh, a close friend of Justice Yadav and the alleged conduit for the Rs 15 lakh that was allegedly paid to her.
