New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra dropped husband Robert Vadra at the Enforcement Directorate office where he went for questioning in a money laundering case today.
Priyanka did it to drive home the point that her husband had her full support. “I stand by my husband,” she told NDTV.
A Delhi court had directed Vadra to appear for questioning when he had applied for anticipatory bail last week.
The case involves the purchase and possession of certain immovable assets in London.
Last Saturday, Vadra had got an anticipatory bail in connection with a money-laundering case lodged by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, has been granted anticipatory bail till Feb 16.
Earlier, Vadra’s close aide and other accused in the case, Manoj Arora, was granted anticipatory bail.
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.
