In addition, the anti-money laundering agency has also summoned Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra for questioning tomorrow in connection with illegal purchase of high end properties abroad..here’s more.
There seems to be no end of trouble for congress & Gandhi family. In National Herald case, Enforcement Directorate has permanently attached properties worth Rs 64 crores located at Panchkula in Haryana .
These properties were attached by the probe agency in December 2018.
The properties that have been attached include. A plot in sector 6 in Punchkula, ED says this property was illegally alloted to AJL by then CM of Haryana Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
Hooda was also the chairman of Haryana urban development authority. BJP has hit out at Cong and the Gandhi family over the issue..
ED has also summoned cong president Rahul Gandhi’s brother in law Robert Vadra to appear before it on Thursday in connection with a money laundering case linked to purchase of alleged illegal assets abroad.
The Enforcement Directorate moved to court last week seeking cancellation of the anticipatory bail given to Vadra in this case and the Delhi High Court had then issued notice to him seeking his response.
The ED which had grilled Vadra over a dozen times in this case 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 located at 12, Bryanston Square worth 1.9 million GBP.. which is allegedly owned by him.
The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday opposed Robert Vadra’s plea in Delhi court seeking permission to fly to the United Kingdom and two other countries citing health problems.
Vadra also submitted a medical certificate. Vadra has rubbished the claims made by ED and called it politcally motivated.
