Robert Vadra’s interim bail extended till March 2
Robert Vadra says 'witch hunt' against him after ED attaches assets
New Delhi: A Delhi Court on Saturday extended the interim bail for Robert Vadra from February 2 order till March 2, on condition that Vadra submits his full cooperation in the case. Vadra is the accused in a money laundering case lodged by Enforcement Directorate (ED) who has claimed that he was not cooperating in the matter.
Vadra gave his assurance over cooperation after the ED told the court that he was not cooperating in the probe and was required for questioning for at least four to five more days. Vadra was also questioned by the ED for three consecutive days last week in Delhi.
The agency had grilled the accused in Jaipur twice earlier this week in a separate case related to land allotments. His mother Maureen was also asked to depose but was allowed to go after completion of brief legal procedures.
Vadra has termed as “witch hunt” the ED’s action of attaching assets of a firm linked to him, and claimed that it showed “complete misuse of the assertion of power”.
He alleged “relentless harassment,” a day after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said it has attached assets worth Rs 4.62 crore of a firm linked to him in connection with the Bikaner land scam money laundering case.
Delhi Court Special judge Arvind Kumar granted the relief to Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
