Robert Vadra Granted Interim Bail By Delhi Court
New Delhi: Businessman Robert Vadra has been granted interim bail till February 16 by a Delhi Court in an alleged money-laundering case. Vadra, husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was recently appointed in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh where the Lok Sabha constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also located, denied the probe agency’s allegations as “political vendetta in an election year”.
Robert Vadra’s close aide Manoj Arora, another accused in the case, was already given protection from arrest. Investigators say Mr Arora is one of the main accused as he was aware of Mr Vadra’s undeclared assets aboard and was instrumental in arranging funds for the properties.
“Vadra was beneficially controlling the property at 12, Bryanston Square, London, UK, which was valued at 1.9 million pound, and not only executing renovation work of this property but also arranging funds for the same,” the ED told the Delhi court in early January.
Robert Vadra has in the past alleged that the government led by PM Modi has been out to get him with false cases to harass the Congress party.
“This thing has been going on since 2016. Till date, they do not have any evidence. All this is political vendetta… Robert Vadra will come here (on February 6) and he is ready for any investigation. Entire record has been given to them (investigators) years ago and they found nothing wrong ” said KTS Tulsi, Robert Vadra’s lawyer.
