The property is allegedly owned by him. On 16th February, his interim bail was extended up to 2nd March.

Earlier this month, the ED had attached Robert Vadra’s company, M/s Sky Light Hospitality (P) Ltd worth Rs 4.62 crore. In April last year, ED had attached the properties of Vadra’ aide Jaiprakash Bagarwa in connection with the Bikaner Land Scam case.
