Robert Vadra moves court seeking to quash ED case against him and declare some provisions of PMLA unconstitutional

The ED case relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property

Robert Vadra, brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi has moved the Delhi High Court seeking the quashing of the FIR registered against him by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). He has also sought to declare several provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA) ultra vires to the Indian Constitution.

The ED case relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property at 12, Bryanston Square, worth 1.9 million pounds. The property is allegedly owned by Robert Vadra.

Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate had sought custodial interrogation of Robert Vadra in the matter and the arguments were set to be heard on 25th March 2019. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) in its reply to Robert Vadra’s anticipatory bail plea in Delhi’s Patiala House Court said that Vadra is not cooperating with the probe. The ED has asked for his custodial interrogation.

Troubles have only mounted for Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra. In February, 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. 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 some real estate developers.
