The VB director Parminder Rai told HT that though an inquiry into alleged irregularities in the purchase of ``moong'' (green gram) was already on, the VB had now merged one more complaint pertaining to alleged delay in supply of wheat seeds to farmers and costlier purchase of weedicides into the same inquiry.
 
It may be recalled that 1991-batch officer Khemka had been in news ever since he cancelled the mutation of the UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra-DLF land deal in Gurgaon, last year. The Haryana government had decided to chargesheet Khemka for "administrative misconduct" and "overstepping his jurisdiction" in cancelling the mutation of this land deal.

Besides, the state government is deciding to chargesheet Khemka for the alleged low sale of wheat seeds by the HSDC during his stint.

However, the Chandigarh unit of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has initiated a preliminary inquiry on a complaint lodged by Khemka against officials of two central agencies for selling wheat seeds to the HSDC at inflated prices.
