NEW DELHI, Feb 10: The troubles for Robert Vadra, brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who was grilled by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for three days in connection with a money laundering case, may not end any time soon as the probe agencies are again set to question him in the coming days in different cases involving his company Skylight Hospitality.
The ED, which questioned Vadra for the first time for three days in connection with a money laundering case, plans to interrogate him again on February 12 in Jaipur in an another money-laundering case related to a land scam in Rajasthan's Bikaner, sources said.
Vadra and his mother, Maureen Vadra, have been asked by the Rajasthan High Court to appear before the ED on February 12 to respond to allegations of money laundering by his firm.
The ED had for the third time, issued summons to Robert Vadra and his mother, a partner in the firm last November but none of them appeared and instead moved the high court seeking a "no coercive action" order and stay of their arrest. The Rajasthan High Court has directed him to cooperate with the agency in the case.
The agency had registered a money laundering case in September 2015 alleging that Skylight Hospitality had acquired land in Kolayat village of Bikaner, which was meant for rehabilitation of poor villagers. It was alleged that Vadra bought 69.55 hectares of land at a cheaper rate and sold it to Allegenery Finlease for Rs 5.15 crore through illegal transactions. - IANS
