New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday, during a hearing in the Delhi High Court, reiterated the need for custodial interrogation of Robert Vadra in the money laundering case under the PMLA Act.
The high court was hearing a plea filed by the probe agency against the anticipatory bail granted to Vadra by the trial court.
DP Singh, counsel for the agency told the court that they had found a money chain and needed Vadra for custodial interrogation to unearth the scam.
The court adjourned the hearing in the case till 5 November.
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.
