The Delhi HC grants 4 weeks to Robert Vadra to file a rejoinder to the ED's reply to his petition seeking quashing of certain provisions of the money laundering case
The case will next be heard on November 18
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday granted four weeks to Robert Vadra to file a rejoinder to the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) reply to his petition seeking quashing of certain provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Vadra’s counsel KTS Tulsi sought time, saying the documents were almost ready and they just need to file it.
He also contested the ED’s claim that the businessman was suppressing material facts in his petition before the high court.
"They do not give the copy of ECIR (Enforcement Case Information Report) and then they say I have suppressed facts. They provided me the ECIR copy only after court's order. I have disclosed all the facts which were in my knowledge. There is no suppression on my part," Tulsi said.
The matter was being heard by Justice Manmohan and Justice Sangeeta Dhingra Sehgal.
In the last hearing, the court had dismissed the plea of Vadra, husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi, to not take any coercive action against him in a case of money laundering. The reason for dismissal was that Vadra withdrew his application as he was already granted anticipatory bail by the special court.
