In a shocking disclosure, it has been revealed that Yes Bank founder Rana Kapoor, who’s currently being investigated after his arrest early this morning on allegations of Money laundering, purchased a painting by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for Rs 2 crore, reports Times of India.
As per the report, investigations are underway by the Income Tax department to ascertain whether there is a link between Yes Bank founder Rana Kapoor and Congress' Priyanka Gandhi.
Earlier today, the Enforcement Directorate arrested Rana in money laundering case after extensive questioning for over 30 hours. The information regarding the purchase of painting was reportedly revealed during interrogation.
However, it should be noted that Congress has not categorically denied that Priyanka Gandhi’s painting was indeed purchased by Rana Kapoor. However, they claim that the mere transaction doesn’t necessarily indicate any wrongdoing, reports TimesNow.
