The Enforcement Directorate (ED), on Saturday, conducted a raid at the residence of Congress worker and businessman Robert Vadra's close aide Jagdish Sharma and took him into custody for questioning.
Following the raids at Sharma's Delhi residence, the ED has found documents leading to the properties owned by Robert Vadra's properties in India and in London, top sources have confirmed.
Earlier on Saturday, ED had taken few documents from Sharma's office at Dharma Marg in New Delhi, as per his employee Rajender Sharma who was present at the location in New Delhi.
While speaking to the reporters in the matter, Sharma stated that Robert Vadra is being framed and had targeted the Modi government for trapping him:
“Robert Vadra is being framed. Modi government wants to trap Robert Vadra. Searches are on at my residence. What will they get when there is nothing. They are taking me to ED office for questioning."
On December 7, an ED team had raided the Skylight hospitality, Robert Vadra’s office in Sukhdev Vihar, Delhi. In response to the raid, Vadra’s counsel had made serious charges against the ED of hounding his clients and fabricating evidences.
In the light of the extradition of AgustaWestland middleman Christian Michel from Dubai to India, Robert Vadra on Wednesday had posted a message on social media about the ED summons sent to him in a Bikaner land deal case. He had called it a 'political witch-hunt' against him, stating that the government departments were operating an agenda to besmirch his dignity and reputation.
"The political witch-hunt carries on unceasingly with government departments clearly operating on an agenda to besmirch my dignity and reputation. I have cooperated fully with them for the last 4.5 years. I will continue to do so.
