Vadra’s interim protection from arrest extended

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Saturday extended the interim protection from arrest granted to Robert Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, in a money laundering case.

Special Judge Arvind Kumar extended the interim protection from arrest to Vadra and his associate Manoj Arora till March 19.

The court also directed them to appear before the Enforcement Directorate, which is presently probing the case, whenever they are required.

The court was hearing Vadra and Arora’s anticipatory bail pleas.

The case relates to the ownership of overseas assets worth 1.9 million pounds by Vadra.

On December 7, 2018, the ED had raided several of Vadra’s properties in Delhi-NCR and Bengaluru.
