Don't own properties in London: Robert Vadra to ED during 4-hour grilling
New Delhi, Feb 6 (IBNS): Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's husband Robert Vadra denied owning several properties in London during his four-hour questioning by the Enforcement Directorate this evening, NDTV said citing sources.
A Delhi court had directed Robert Vadra recently to cooperate in the investigation in the case when he had applied for anticipatory bail last week. The case involves the purchase and possession of certain immovable assets in London.
On Saturday, Vadra had got an anticipatory bail till February 16 in connection with a money-laundering case lodged by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today dropped husband Robert Vadra at the Enforcement Directorate office where he went for questioning. "I stand by my husband," she told NDTV.
Priyanka recently joined active politics. The Congress party has given her the charge of the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh where the constituencies of BJP heavyweights Narendra Modi (Varanasi) and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath (Gorakhpur) lie.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) in November last year had summoned Vadra in the Bikaner land grab case, which concerns a number of companies associated with Vadra that were allegedly involved in fraudulent land deals. The ED is carrying out the probe based on FIRs filed by Rajasthan police in 2015.
Robert Vadra was earlier accused in the DLF land grab scam case related to a 50-acre land grab in 2013 in Amipur village of Haryana during the Congress' Bhupinder Singh Hooda government.
The CBI was investigating Robert Vadra, Hooda and DLF in the case.
