Money laundering case: ED questions Robert Vadra

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) questioned Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law and businessman Robert Vadra for the second day on Thursday in connection with a money laundering case. The team that questioned Vadra was led by a Joint Director and two Deputy Directors, said reports. He was asked to appear before Enforcement Directorate’s Jaipur office on February 12.

On Wednesday (February 6), Vadra was grilled for over six hours during which investigators, reportedly, recorded his statement. Yesterday (Feb 6) was the first time Vadra appeared before any central probe agency in connection with allegations of dubious financial dealings.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra had earlier alleged at a briefing that Vadra bought 8 to 9 properties in London from the money he got as kickbacks from a petroleum and a defence deal which took place in 2008-09 when the UPA was in power.
