The Haryana government on Wednesday said no inquiry report has been received till date from former Gurgaon divisional commissioner Pradeep Kasni regarding land mutations in Gurgaon's Harsaru village.

Responding to Kasni's assertions that an inquiry report was submitted by him to the state government, which led to his shifting out, a revenue department spokesman said it has come to the notice of the government that one Jagbir Singh, son of Matu Ram of Harsaru village in Gurgaon, had made a complaint to Kasni on November 25.

The complaint was investigated by Kasni and in his December 22 order, he concluded that eight mutations involving 8 acres had been wrongly sanctioned by the then Gurgaon tehsildar.

Kasni had also observed that huge loss had been incurred to the state government by wrongful sanctioning of the mutations. In view of the findings of the inquiry conducted by him, Kasni had asked the collector, Gurgaon, to quickly cross-check the facts and pass an order within 15 days to secure the interests of the state government.

"From the above, it is clear that Kasni as the then Gurgaon divisional commissioner had directed the collector, Gurgaon, to take all steps which were necessary and legally tenable in his December 22 order.

However, no copy or reference on this issue or order has been made to the state government so far," the spokesman said.

The collector, Gurgaon, is expected to complete the investigations and give his report within the prescribed limit of 15 days. The government would take a serious view if any acts of omissions or commissions are found in the investigation by the collector, the spokesman said.
