Robert Vadra files reply to ED's bail cancellation plea in PMLA case

  • The case relates to alleged money laundering for purchase of a 1.9 million pound property in London by Vadra
  • Vadra said in his there was no risk of him tampering with evidence as the ED had seized every last document pertaining to him

New Delhi: Robert Vadra has filed a reply to the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) application in the Delhi High court in which the investigating agency has challenged his anticipatory bail in the money laundering case under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Vadra, son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, said in his reply that there was not a single instance of his non-cooperation with the investigation and there was no risk of him tampering with any evidence as the ED has already seized from him every document pertaining to the case.

The husband of Priyanka Gandhi has denied that he has any property outside the country. He has claimed in his reply that he has never received any 'kickback' for any 'deal' and any allegations of this nature are completely false.

The agency had approached the Delhi High Court on 24 May seeking the cancellation of the bail granted to Vadra by a trial court in a money laundering case. The ED, in its plea, had said the protection granted to Vadra would be detrimental to the investigation and that it was necessary to cancel the bail to unearth the entire source of credit used to purchase properties.

While granting bail, on a personal bond of 5 lakh and a surety of the same amount, the trial court had directed Vadra not to leave the country without prior permission and also to join the investigation whenever required.

Robert Vadra has been facing allegations of money laundering in purchase of a London-based property at 12, Bryanston Square worth 1.9 million pounds.
