ED moves Delhi high court seeking cancellation of anticipatory bail granted to Robert Vadra

ED alleges that Robert Vadra is not cooperating in the probe and his custodial interrogation is needed.

The Enforcement Directorate has approached the Delhi High Court seeking cancellation of anticipatory bail granted to Robert Vadra. ED is investigating the brother in law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi in money laundering case and requesting his custodial interrogation.

On April 1, a special CBI court had granted anticipatory bail to Robert Vadra in the money laundering case. They had applied for anticipatory bail after ED had sought custodial interrogation of Vadra stating that there was a risk of the investigation getting tampered. Vadra’s close associate Manoj Arora was also granted anticipatory bail on the same day.

Vadra was earlier on interim bail granted by Patiala House Court in Delhi, which was extended several times.

Vadra is being proved in several cases by investigating agencies, which includes money laundering and illegal land deal cases. According to ED, the money laundering case involves payment of Rs 300 crore in a defence deal and USD 10 million received in a petroleum deal. A 1.9 million GBP London based property owned by Vadra is also a subject of the probe.

Earlier ED had questioned Robert Vadra in its office, but ED had alleged that he was not cooperating in the investigation and said that his custodial interrogation is required. ED ha said in the court that “Robert Vadra is not cooperating despite several opportunities and his custodial interrogation is required.” The agency had also said that Vadra had started political mudslinging, saying “It is unfortunate that the petitioner has got involved in political mudslinging. His conduct during the course of investigation raises even more apprehensions that he is a key to unearthing the modus operandi and black money.”
