A day after she wrote to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) requesting to defer the questioning citing her illness, the probe agency issued fresh summons to Congress President Sonia Gandhi to join mid-July the probe into the National Herald money-laundering case.
The Congress chief was to be questioned on June 23 in the case. But a source said, “She was suffering from Covid complications and was not fit for questioning.”
Sonia, who was undergoing treatment at Delhi’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, was discharged on Monday. She was admitted to the hospital on June 12 after she complained of bleeding from the nose. She was later tested positive for Covid.
The Congress president had earlier been scheduled to appear before the ED on June 8 but had sought more time from the probe agency in view of the Covid infection. The agency then issued a fresh summons and asked her to join on June 23.
Meanwhile, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi was questioned for about 51 hours during five-day long questioning.
