New Delhi: The Lok Sabha elections are over and the BJP is back in power at the Centre with a renewed and more robust mandate than before. The Enforcement Directorate now continues its investigation into the overseas properties of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's brother-in-law Robert Vadra.
The ED has summoned Vadra for questioning once again on Thursday, May 30, at its Delhi office. Vadra is to reach the ED office by 10.30 in the morning.
Vadra has been called for questioning in his alleged dealings with fugitive arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari regarding the alleged funnelling of black money generated in a deal sealed by Bhandari into a London flat owned allegedly by Vadra.
The ED believes that Vadra was the beneficiary of kickbacks received by Bhandari for facilitating a deal between Samsung and PSU Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) during UPA-1 regime in 2009 — according to the documentary evidence exclusively accessed by MyNation.
The money was then round-tripped and used for buying 12 Ellorton House, Bryanston Square, in London, among the many overseas properties that Priyanka Vadra’s husband allegedly owns.
Bryanston Square property is just one of the many overseas properties for which the ED is already probing Vadra and Bhandari. Earlier, the income tax department had accessed several pieces of incriminating digital evidence in the form of email exchanges between Vadra, his then executive assistant Manoj Arora and Sumit Chadha, a close relative of Bhandari, from a raid on properties related to Bhandari in India. It emerged that Vadra was beneficially controlling the property and was incurring expenditure for its renovation.
