Robert Vadra questioned by investigation agencies in money laundering case
February 8, 2019
Businessman Robert Vadra was questioned by the top investigation agency on Wednesday. Vadra, who is the husband of Priyanka Gandhi and brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, has been under the scanner for dealing with top international agencies in money laundering matters. He was grilled by the Enforcement Directorate for many hours. Reportedly, Vadra has denied owning properties in London or even having connections with people or agencies involved in the case.
Vadra was dropped into the agency office by his wife Priyanka Gandhi. He was probed for over five hours after which he left for lunch and then came back. Reportedly, he left the office by 10 pm. Gandhi even told that she stands with her husband amidst the controversies. But that did not go well amongst social media users.
Shocking if true. Can't believe she said that #RobertVadra-Ravindra Jadeja, cricketer
Vadra's case came up to light and investigations started to become in full-throttle a few days after Priyanka Gandhi entered active politics.
Even though Vadra has denied any allegations, the investigating agency has said that they are going to probe into the matter in detail.
"Important to note that the 8 properties in London acquired allegedly illegally by #RobertVadra were, as per #ED, bought from kickbacks in defence & petroleum deals in the steroid-driven years of UPA1, 2004-09, under the benign gaze of MoF", tweeted Minhaz Merchant, a media personality.
