    IAS officer Ashok Khemka, who questioned land deals involving Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law and businessman Robert Vadra and real estate giant DLF, has been served a fresh chargesheet by the Haryana government.

    The state government has asked Mr Khemka to respond to the chargesheet, served last night and received by his son, within 15 days.

    The senior bureaucrat has been charged on six counts including on the mutation of the Vadra-DFL land deal illegally and causing damage to the reputation of the businessman and DLF.

    In 2012, while Mr Khemka was the top man in the department that handles land registration, he cancelled a Rs. 57-crore deal between Mr Vadra and real estate major DLF on the grounds that it violated basic guidelines to grant windfall gain to the businessman. Since then, he was subjected to several transfers, the most recent being in the last month that was the 45th in his entire career. He has also been served with at least three chargesheets since last year while serving in several departments. The IAS officer has alleged he is being persecuted for challenging those deals.

    The state government headed by Bhupinder Hooda has repeatedly rejected Mr Khemka's allegation that Robert Vadra was given sweetheart land deals in the state, which allowed him windfall gain.
