Robert Vadra can travel abroad except London for medical treatment: Court

Earlier, the ED had sought custodial interrogation of Robert Vadra citing that he is not complying with the investigative agencies in its probe and providing evasive answers to their questions.

Embroiled in money laundering cases and allegations of ownership of undisclosed properties abroad, particularly in London, the courts have permitted Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law and Priyanka Gandhi’s husband, Robert Vadra to travel abroad for medical treatment. However, the court has maintained that Robert Vadra cannot travel to London for the treatment.

Under scanner by Enforcement Directorate for his alleged involvement in money laundering cases, Robert Vadra had earlier applied to Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court seeking permission to fly to London. Vadra had reportedly submitted a medical certificate to the court stating that he has a tumour in his large intestine and he needs to go to London for treatment.

The Delhi court has allowed Vadra to travel abroad for six weeks for treatment of an illness. The court told Mr Vadra to give his travel schedule and to return to India before the deadline. Vadra has been permitted to go to the US and the Netherlands, but not to Britain. KTS Tulsi, the counsel representing Robert Vadra said that the businessman will not go to London if the Enforcement Directorate, which is probing the alleged money laundering case against him, had an objection on his visit to Britain.

Representing the Enforcement Directorate, Solicitor Gen Tushar Mehta and advocate Nitesh Rana had opposed Vadra’s petition in which he had asked permission to travel to the UK and other countries citing health reasons.

Vadra is under investigation in several cases by probing 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 allegedly owned by Vadra is also a subject of the probe.
