The interim bail of Robert Vadra, who is being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering case, has been extended till March 19 by Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Saturday.
Vadra, who is being questioned by the central agency, was earlier granted interim bail by the said court on February 2 till February 16 after his lawyer KTS Tulsi ensured in the court that Vadra will join the ED investigation on February 6.
The case relates to the ownership of undisclosed assets abroad worth 1.9 million pounds allegedly belonging to Vadra.
Vadra appeared before the ED on February 6, 7, and 9 after he was directed by a Delhi court to cooperate with the investigation being carried out by the central probe agency.
Later, Vadra and his mother Maureen appeared before the Enforcement Directorate on February 12 at the zonal office, Jaipur, in connection with a probe into the Bikaner land deal case. The two were questioned in their capacity as Directors of Sky Light Hospitality Private Limited.
On February 25, a Delhi court had directed the Enforcement Directorate to provide Vadra the hard copies of the documents recovered in raids from his properties.
The ED had, on December 7, last year, raided several properties in Delhi-NCR and Bengaluru belonging to Vadra.
Robert Vadra had for the first time appeared before the Enforcement Directorate on February 6 after a Delhi court ordered him to join the investigation where he was quizzed by a team of seven ED officials of the rank of Deputy Director and Assistant Directors.
