Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra on Friday moved the Patiala House Court in New Delhi seeking anticipatory bail.
It is in connection with a money laundering case being probed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).The case relates to ownership of undisclosed assets abroad worth 1.9 million pounds allegedly belonging to Vadra, brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
The ground on which Robert Vadra is seeking bail is his claim of being a law-abiding citizen.
He said that he is being subjected to false prosecution which has a colour of political witch-hunt.
The case relates to allegations of money laundering during the purchase of a London-based property — located at 12, Bryanston Square — worth 1.9 million pounds, which is allegedly owned by Vadra.
Vadra’s move comes after the court granted anticipatory bail to his alleged aide Manoj Arora, who is also accused in the case.
Arora was given interim bail till February 6 after he told the court that he was ready to join the investigation.
Arora had also earlier alleged before the court that the case was foisted on him by the NDA government out of “political vendetta”.
