A one-man commission constituted by the government to look into land violations in the Himachal Pradesh since 2003 has sought extension for another six months to be able to complete its work. Commission’s time is coming to an end on December 20. The commission, headed by a retired High Court Judge, Justice DP Sood, was constituted in June mainly to probe benami land deals. At that time the commission had been given six months to wind up its work and submit the final report to the government.
