Vadra’s custodial interrogation may be needed: ED

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday told a Delhi court that Robert Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, is not cooperating in the investigation and the agency may require his custodial interrogation in a money laundering case.

A Special Public Prosecutor told Special Judge Arvind Kumar that despite being given various opportunities, Vadra is not cooperating in the investigation and he is evasive in his responses.

The ED also filed a reply on Vadra’s anticipatory bail plea.

The court listed the matter for further hearing on March 25 and extended interim protection from arrest granted to Vadra till the next date fixed for the hearing.

The case relates to the ownership of overseas assets worth 1.9 million pounds by Vadra.

On December 7, 2018, the ED had raided several of Vadra’s properties in Delhi-NCR and Bengaluru.
