Reports of close friendship between arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari and Robert Vadra are nothing new in media. There were even reports of Sanjay Bhandari and Robert Vadra attending several high profile arms expos in Dubai and elsewhere. Sanjay Bhandari’s company, Offsets India solutions (OIS) had once even attempted to become the offset partner with French company, Dassault Aviation for Rafale fighter jets, during UPA regime.
Reportedly, few rounds of meetings had also taken place between the two companies and there was considerable backing for OIS from some top bosses at New Delhi. However Dassault Aviation later denied to make OIS their partners in the deal for several reasons, one of them was the links between Company’s promoter Sanjay Bhandari and Robert Vadra.
Now some reports regarding Sanjay Bhandari have emerged, and they may be worrisome for some in New Delhi. Bhandari has been under investigation since 2010 and in 2016, several confidential documents were seized from his offices, after which he was booked under Official secrets act. Now if the rumors are to be believed, then Bhandari is willing to name the high profile people from political circles who had helped him to obtain confidential information, against a clean-chit from the authorities.
Reportedly, Sanjay Bhandari sent an associate to the top Government officials, informing them about his willingness to talk. As per a report of Republic TV , the associate informed the officials that Bhandari is under lot of pressure and is expecting a prompt response.
Some reports suggest that this anonymous associate is named, Sudhir Chaudharie and is himself an arms dealer, who himself had managed to get a clean-chit after providing valuable information to the Government. The NDA government is yet respond to Bhandari’s offer.
