The department said that this would help them in better coordination, effective investigation in the assessment of cases of Sanjay Bhandari as well as Vadra. Later, the personal assessment case of the Gandhi family was transferred to the same circle. After this, questions arose whether he was being linked to Bhandari or Vadra.
