ED issues fresh summon to Robert Vadra

NSD Logo
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued a fresh summon to Robert Vadra to appear before it tomorrow. 

Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, is summoned in connection with a money laundering case linked to purchase of alleged illegal assets abroad.

The ED  had last week moved  Delhi High Court seeking cancellation of the anticipatory bail given to Vadra in this case. The Delhi High Court had on Monday issued a notice to him seeking his response. 

The ED had grilled Vadra over a dozen times in this case. It had told the Delhi HC that it required Vadra's custody as he was not cooperating in the investigation and the trial court had not discussed the gravity of the offence in its order that gave relief to Vadra. 

The ED case against Vadra relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property worth 1.9 million British pounds  which is allegedly owned by him.

The agency had told a Delhi court that it had received information about various new properties in London which belong to Vadra. 

These include two houses, one worth 5 million  British pounds and the other valued at 4 million British pounds, six other flats and more properties.

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.
