The documents found during raids conducted at the premises of close associates of Robert Vadra by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) suggest that he has properties in London and India, sources in the investigative agency claimed on Saturday.
ED sources, who refused to come on record, claimed that the documents found at these premises showed that Vadra, a businessman, has properties abroad, besides in India.
Vadra's lawyer Suman Khaitan has said that the ED conducted raids at the behest of the central government to "plant evidence" against the businessman to divert attention from the probable loss of recently-held Legislative Assembly elections.
"They (central government) have not found any evidence since last four-and-half years. So they wanted to come, lock the door, plant evidence today. They will lose elections and to divert attention, they will claim that they found the evidence (which is actually) manufactured and planted," Khaitan told media.
