The Delhi High Court today sought a response from Robert Vadra on a plea of Enforcement Directorate seeking cancellation of his anticipatory bail in a money-laundering case.
Justice Chander Shekhar issued a notice to Vadra on the petition challenging trial court’s April 1 order, which granted him anticipatory bail.
The court also sought the response of Vadra’s close aide Manoj Arora on ED’s plea seeking cancellation of the anticipatory bail.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing ED in the court, said they required his custody as Vadra was not cooperating in the investigation and the trial court had not discussed the gravity of the offence in its order.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law, Vadra is facing allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property worth nearly 2 million pounds.
The case is being probed under the provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
