“If he is ready to answer questions and cooperate, we can see it then. If he wants to argue the bail plea, we can proceed that way as well,” said Singh. SSP Singh also objected to the use of social media by accused Robert Vadra, in which he had claimed the ED investigation as a part of political vendetta.

During today’s hearing, the ED prosecutor also stated that he (Vadra) travels, a ‘Baraat’ (wedding procession) follows him, whether it is to ED office or to court.

Senior Advocate KTS Tulsi, appearing for the accused Robert Vadra assured that they are ready to extend our complete co-operation. The court posted the hearing of anticipatory bail plea to March 2 and granted interim protection from arrest to remain in force till then.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a major development in the Bikaner Land Scam case, had yesterday attached the assets of Robert Vadra’s company M/s Sky Light Hospitality (P) Ltd worth Rs 4.62 crore.

Robert Vadra had finally appeared at the ED office for questioning on February 6, after several summonses. Since then, the ED had interrogated Vadra several times.

In April last year, ED had attached the properties of Vadra’ aide Jaiprakash Bagarwa in connection with the Bikaner Land Scam case. In the Bikaner Land Scam case, the land was allegedly allotted in the name of non-existent individuals by the State government officials in collusion with some fraudulent individuals including real estate developers.

Vadra also has a criminal case registered against him under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) over allegations that his firm, Sky Light Hospitality had bought a piece of land in Kolayat and Bikaner for cheap and sold the same at an extremely high premium through illegal transactions.
