ANI  |  Politics 

UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra was grilled by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for over eight hours on Saturday in connection with a money laundering case.

This is the third time Vadra was questioned this week.

Vadra reached ED's office at Jamnagar House in central Delhi around 10.45 am this morning for questioning. After a two-hour-long break, questioning resumed at around 3 pm and ended at around 8:30 pm.

ED officials had quizzed Vadra on Wednesday and Thursday as well.

On Thursday, his questioning started at around 9.20 am. It was only at around 9.20 pm that his wife and now Congress general secretary Priyanka Vadra reached the ED office and thereafter, the duo headed back to their residence in their heavily guarded convoy as per their entitlements.

Altogether, Vadra was questioned for a total of 24 hours this week by an ED team led by a Joint Director and comprising a Deputy Director and five other officers

Vadra's lawyer KTS Tulsi had earlier alleged that the ED was leaking information about his questioning. He claimed that the probe agency has nothing concrete against his client.

The Patiala House court has granted interim bail to Vadra on February 2 till February 16 in connection with the case.
