Hooda was scheduled to join the Commission before March 25, but today it was his counsel Narendra Hooda who appeared before it instead.
While the former chief minister's counsel contended that his client was not sent any documents mentioning the grounds on which a notice was issued to him, Dhingra rejected the stand.

"I have an obligation to give everyone an opportunity to put his/her words before the panel. I have already given two dates to Bhupinder Hooda, March 21 and 25, to record his statement," Dhingra said.
"After the commission sent him a notice, no adjournment application was sent to us mentioning the grounds on which he avoided the probe panel," he added.
Narendra Hooda, however, claimed that an inquiry cannot be conducted against Bhupinder Hooda as there were no supplementary documents or complaint copy.
"When the commission sent him summons, Hooda showed his non-availability and thus we gave him another chance for today, but he avoided it. "It was a great opportunity for Bhupinder Hooda to clarify his stand pertaining to dubious land deals in Gurgaon during his tenure as chief minister, but he avoided the probe panel.
"Bhupinder Hooda is free to take any decision and the commission can't pressure him. At the same time, I am also free to pass judgement pertaining to this case," Dhingra said.
