The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is probing a case of money laundering against Robert Vadra in which a property of higher value was purchased at a cheaper price by Vadra in London.
Jamnagar: Robert Vadra, accompanied by his wife and the newly-appointed Congress general secretary for Uttar Pradesh (East) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, arrived at the Enforcement Directorate office on Wednesday. Vadra is expected to be grilled by the ED officials for at least two hours in relation to charges of corruption against him.
The couple reached the ED’s Jamnagar office at around 3.55 pm and avoided the media. Nobody, including his team of lawyers, was allowed inside the premises.
According to the sources, the ED officials are expecting answers related to Vadra's properties abroad including their source of funding. The sources confirmed that almost three dozen questions will be asked by the ED officials in relation to the case.
Vadra, who will not face any coercive action, was asked by a Delhi court last week to join the probe by appearing before the ED in person on February 6.
The ED is probing a case of money laundering against Vadra in which a property of higher value was purchased at a cheaper price by Vadra in London.
The directorate had told the court that it had information that Vadra owned multiple properties in London in one of the most expensive areas of the city. Also, there are at least half a dozen flats which were allegedly purchased through money laundering. “We just want him to come and inform about his properties,” the ED counsel had said in the court.
Vadra has been granted anticipatory bail. The agency had already carried out raids in December last year and grilled Vadra’s close aide Manoj Arora.
