New Delhi: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's brother-in-law Robert Vadra, on Friday, skipped his questioning and informed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials that he is unwell. According to sources, Vadra, who was grilled by the investigators on Thursday is not cooperating with the agency. The Enforcement Directorate is probing a money-laundering case involving assets abroad. Vadra was supposed to depose in front of the officials at 2 pm but he sent his advocates in his stead.
ED has also opposed his anticipatory bail claiming that he is not cooperating. ED was supposed to get some details regarding the amount received by his company as kickbacks in the petroleum deals made in Gujarat. The agency had said that the money was used to buy properties in London. The officials also noted that the agency had got more leads.
According to a source, Vadra had been asked to bring documents related to his foreign assets, their trail of funding and others. Vadra will be questioned about his flat in London as he allegedly purchased it from the kickbacks that he received.
Vadra has been called for questioning in his alleged dealings with fugitive arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari regarding the alleged funneling 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.
