The Enforcement Directorate has summoned Robert Varda to appear before the agency officials in connection with a money laundering case against him involving overseas properties on Thursday (30 May), reports ZEE News.
Husband of the Congress party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Robert vadra has been facing legal proceedings in association with the case of money laundered to purchase of a property worth 1.9 million pounds in London.
Vadra had been granted an anticipatory bail on 1 April, but was restrained from flying out of India by the court. The court also went on to warn Varda against tampering with any evidence or influencing any witnesses in the case.
Along with Vadra, an anticipatory bail had also been granted to his close aide, Manoj Arora in the same case. However, the ED had approached the Delhi High Court on Monday (17 May) challenging the bail granted to the duo.
The Delhi High Court has now sought response from Vadra and Arora and the next hearing in the case has been scheduled for 17 July.
