New Delhi: Robert Vardra, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law, on Wednesday arrived at Enforcement Directorate office in Jaipur for the questioning in connection with Bikaner land deal case. This is the second consecutive day of Vadra’s questioning.
Vadra has already been grilled by the ED on three occasions for his involvement in a money laundering case. On Tuesday, he had lashed out at the Centre through a Facebook post. He called the government vindictive over ED’s summons to his 75-year-old mother. According to reports, Vadra will have to answer 55 questions drafted by the ED.
Earlier, Vadra had claimed that he is being targeted for political reasons. Reports say that Vadra was grilled about properties worth around 12 million pounds in London that allegedly belong to him in eight hours of questioning.
Vadra has denied the allegations of possessing illegal foreign assets and termed them a political witch hunt against him. He said he was being “hounded and harassed” to subserve political ends.
On January 22, the Rajasthan High Court’s Jodhpur bench had directed Vadra, Maureen, and his partners in Skyline Hospitality to appear before the ED on February 12 to respond to the allegations of money laundering levelled against his firm.
