Delhi Patiala House Court on Saturday extended Interim Bail of Robert Vadra and Manoj Arora – Vadra’s close aide, in connection with a money laundering case, till 2 March. During the hearing, Enforcement Directorate (ED) counsel informed Patiala House Court that the probing agency will require Vadra to appear before it 4-5 times to carry forward ongoing Investigation in alleged Money Laundering Case.

The ED’s Counsel also raised the issue of large media contingent following Robert Vadra during his appearance before the Investigation Agency. He said, ‘He (Robert Vadra) was accompanied by a ‘Baarat’ wherever he goes be it ED or Court’.

Senior Advocate KTS Tulsi who appeared for Vadra submitted before the Court that his client has no problem in appearing before the Investigation Agency. Vadra had earlier appeared before the Investigation Agency on 6th, 7th and 9th Feb.

Vadra’s Counsel also informed that Court that the Cumulative Questioning of his client is 23 hours 5 minutes.

Vadra has termed as “witch hunt” the ED’s action of attaching assets of a firm linked to him, and claimed that it showed “complete misuse of the assertion of power”. He alleged “relentless harassment,” a day after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said it has attached assets worth Rs 4.62 crore of a firm linked to him in connection with the Bikaner land scam case.

“I have had nothing to hide and I am surely not above the law. I have deposed for almost 6 days; ranging from 8 to 12 hours per day with a 40-minute lunch break, and have been escorted to the washroom,” Vadra said in a Facebook post.

Earlier, Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Feb 2 granted interim protection to Robert Vadra till 16th February. Robert Vadra‘s lawyer KTS Tulsi ensured in Court that Vadra will join the Enforcement Directorate investigation on February 6.

Vadra on Feb 1 moved to Patiala House Court seeking anticipatory bail petition in connection with a money laundering case. The case relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property — located at 12, Bryanston Square — worth 1.9 million pounds, which is allegedly owned by Vadra.
