Robert Vadra reaches ED office on Day 3 of his questioning on money laundering case
Robert Vadra will appear before the Enforcement Directorate on Saturday morning for questioning with regards to the money laundering case over alleged possession of illegal foreign assets, ED sources have confirmed to Republic TV.
Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for the second consecutive day on Thursday, for at least nine hours over two sessions, in connection with its probe into money laundering charges.
His questioning ended at around 9 pm after which his wife and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra picked him up.
He was questioned on Wednesday for over six hours in the same case. Vadra has repeatedly denied any wrong-doing. The probe was initiated following the registration of money laundering case against Vadra.
On Thursday, Vadra arrived at the ED office in Jamnagar House about 11.25 am and stayed for over two hours. He left for lunch and returned about an hour later to resume the questioning.
ED has alleged that the Vadra is the ultimate beneficiary of a London-based property worth 1.9 million GBP (British pounds), which it alleges was earlier owned by arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari. Bhandari is on the run and is suspected to be in London.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also referred to these emails while attacking Vadra on Thursday. Vadra’s questioning is taking place on the directions of a special court which he moved seeking anticipatory bail in the case. The court granted him protection from arrest till February 16 but asked him to join the probe.
