The state’s security agencies had already information about the Priyanka Vadra’s visit, however there was no information about the exact date of her Shimla visit.

Priyanka Vadra—daughter of Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi—bought the plot of private land in three instalments in 2007, 2011 and 2013.
