Court Adjourns Hearing On Scrapping Of Robert Vadra’s Anticipatory Bail

New Delhi: 

The Delhi High Court on Monday adjourned till December 5 a petition filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) seeking cancellation of anticipatory bail granted to businessman Robert Vadra and Manoj Arora by a trial court in a money laundering case.

On April 1, the trial court had granted anticipatory bail to Mr Vadra and Mr Arora. It had directed them to furnish a personal bond of Rs 5 lakh each and surety of the same amount. Robert Vadra is Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi’s husband.

Seeking cancellation of anticipatory bail, advocate D P Singh, representing the ED, had earlier said that the trial court had not considered certain facts.

He said that Mr Vadra remained “evasive and non-cooperative” during the interrogation and had a “money chain that directly links to him”.

The probe agency contended that the anticipatory bail granted to Mr Vadra and Mr Arora interfered with the investigation.

The case relates to alleged money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property worth 1.9 million pounds.
