Gurgaon: The Justice SN Dhingra Commission of Inquiry, set up in 2015 to probe grant of commercial licence of land to hundreds of private companies, including Skylight Hospitality and DLF, on Wednesday issued summons to former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda to join the investigation.

The commission has asked Hooda to appear before it by March 23 to record his statements regarding allotment of land to Skylight Hospitality, promoted by Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra and other private companies.

Last month, the Commission summoned Haryana chief secretary Deepinder Singh Dhesi and officials of the private firms for recording of statement.

The commission has earlier examined retired IAS officer and member of Union Public Service Commission Chattar Singh, who was the principal secretary in Hooda's CMO.

Singh handled files of the town and country planning department in the chief minister's office (CMO).

After being set up by the BJP government in May 2015, the scope of the commission's inquiry was widened on Justice Dhingra's advice.
