Against corruption, Modi Government 2.0 is constantly looking into action. The Ministry of Defense has banned all types of businesses with arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari indefinitely. Sanjay Bhandari is absconding and is under investigation in Robert Vadra’s alleged London property purchase case.
It is worth mentioning that Bhandari is allegedly involved in several defense deals during the UPA regime and it is alleged that he had taken the brokerage in Pilatus (75 Pilatus PC-7 Basic Trainer Aircraft) Defense Deal. He sent that amount out of the country through Shell companies and it was purchased in London by Anonymous property, whose owner is allegedly Robert Vadra.
It has been stated in the order issued by the Ministry of Defense, “With the approval of the competent authority it has been decided that the stoppage of business with Offset India Solutions Private Limited and its group companies will continue till further order. All the sections of the ministry and service headquarters are requested to strictly follow this decision.
It is noteworthy that with Bhandari’s company Offset India Solutions (OIS), the Ministry of Defense put the first stop on some kind of business in February 2018.
Enforcement Directorate is investigating a case against arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari and wants to detain Priyanka Gandhi’s husband Robert Vadra for detention. ED claims that Sanjay Bhandari has got brokerage in petro and defense deals. Sanjay Bhandari is in London and the Government of India is trying to extradite him.
This is the case
In addition to weapon deals, Sanjay Bhandari’s search is also about a petro-chemical complex manufactured by ONGC. Samsung Engineering got the responsibility to build it, and Samsung took the services of Sanjay Bhandari’s Dubai-based firm Santec International FJC for it. Santec International, the company of Sanjay Bhandari, then bought a property in London in June 2009 at 12 Brianstown Square. This property has been purchased in the name of Wartex Private Limited.
Santac has transferred 19 million pounds to Wartex’s account for this. Later all shares of Wartex Private Limited were purchased by Sky Light Investment FJE Dubai. The control on this company is C Thampi, which is said to be close associate of Robert Vadra.
