Haryana's education minister Ram Bilas Sharma told media here that the commission under the retired Supreme Court judge would inquire into all irregularities committed in the past 10 years of the Congress rule in the state, especially regarding land deals
 
A retired judge of the Supreme Court will probe all irregularities, including the controversial multi-million-rupee land deals of Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra, a senior minister in Haryana said on Wednesday.
 
Haryana's education minister Ram Bilas Sharma told media here that the commission under the retired Supreme Court judge would inquire into all irregularities committed in the past 10 years of the Congress rule in the state, especially regarding land deals.
 
Sharma said several complaints have been received by the BJP government in the state in this regard.
 
Vadra was accused of accumulating land in the national capital region (NCR) area during the Congress government in Haryana led by then chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. 
 
In one particular deal in Gurgaon district, adjoining Delhi, Vadra's company sold off prime land to realty major DLF for Rs.58 crore.

43 killed in Karachi bus firing
At least 43 people were killed and 13 others injured when unidentified gunmen opened fire at a bus in Pakistan's Karachi city on Wednesday.
 
The incident took place near the city's Safoora Chowk area, Dawn online reported. 
 
Sindh Police Inspector General Ghulam Haider Jamali said 60 people were travelling in the bus.
 
Hospital sources said the victims included 16 women. No children were on board.
 
An eyewitness said eight men riding motorcycles opened fire at the bus. They managed to escape after the incident.
 
However, video footage of the bus did not show bullet holes on the body of the vehicle suggesting that the attackers may have entered and fired.
