Jaipur, Feb 12
Robert Vadra, husband of AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi, appeared before Enforcement Directorate at its zonal office in Jaipur in connection with a land scam probe. Vadra’s mother Maureen also appeared before the ED.
In 2015, the ED had registered a criminal case in connection with a land deal in Bikaner, taking cognizance of a clutch of FIRs and charge sheets filed by Rajasthan police ,after the tehsildar of Bikaner complained about alleged forgery in the allotment of land in the area, considered sensitive due to its proximity to the India-Pakistan border.
This is Vadra’s fourth appearance before the agency and first in Jaipur. On the last three occasions, he appeared before ED in Delhi in connection with a money laundering probe against him for his alleged role in procuring assets abroad.
