The Enforcement Directorate on Thursday (26 September) told the Delhi High Court that the "money trail is directly related to Robert Vadra" in a money laundering case against the son-in-law of Congress interim chief Sonia Gandhi.

"There is a money trail directly related to Robert Vadra. Direct payments were made into Pilatus," said ED counsel D P Singh before a single judge bench presided by Justice Chandra Shekhar.

The court was hearing the petition filed by the agency seeking cancellation of bail granted to Vadra in a the money laundering case.

The agency also claimed that the custodial interrogation of Vadra is required.

Opposing the ED's application, Vadra's legal team said that their client has wilfully and voluntarily joined the investigation.

Detailed arguments, however, could not take place as Vadra's main counsel K T S Tulsi was not present.

Following his unavailability, the court adjourned the matter for further arguments on 5 November.
