New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today dismissed a PIL seeking a court-monitored CBI probe into various land deals allegedly entered into by Robert Vadra's firms.

"The petition is dismissed," a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice R S Endlaw said.

Earlier, the bench had reserved its order on the PIL filed by advocate M L Sharma in his personal capacity.

To satisfy the bench on the issue of jurisdiction of this court, the lawyer had said that the cause of action partially had arisen in Delhi as various offices and constitutional bodies such as the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) and Ministry of Urban development are located here.

Sharma had told the court that he had already given a representation to CBI, but it neither registered an FIR nor lodged even a preliminary enquiry in the case "which relates to huge loss caused to the exchequer during 2005 to 2012".

He had also submitted a copy of a Supreme Court judgement which has directed police authorities to register an FIR "mandatorily" if the allegations disclose the commission of a cognisable offence.

The plea had also sought a probe into grant of licences to change land use of agricultural plots purchased by Vadra's companies in Gurgaon.
