Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday sought Robert Vadra’s response to Enforcement Directorate’s plea seeking cancellation of his anticipatory bail in a money-laundering case.

The case is being probed under the provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Justice Chander Shekhar issued a notice to Vadra on ED’s petition challenging trial court’s 1 April order, which had granted him anticipatory bail.

The court also sought a response from Vadra’s close aide Manoj Arora on the agency’s plea seeking cancellation of the anticipatory bail.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the ED in the court, said they required his custody as Vadra was not cooperating in the investigation and the trial court had not discussed the gravity of the offence in its order.

Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, is facing allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property at 12, Bryanston Square worth £ 1.9 million (over Rs 17 crore).

In January, the ED had filed a fresh PMLA case against a firm allegedly linked to Vadra and a few others in connection with suspected financial and other irregularities in land deals in Haryana’s Gurgaon in 2008.

On 6 February, the ED questioned Robert Vadra in connection with a money-laundering probe into his alleged possession of illegal foreign assets. The development came days after his wife Priyanka Gandhi-Vadra was formally inducted into the Indian National Congress.

On 9 February, the agency searched the Faridabad premises of Mahesh Nagar, a person allegedly linked to Robert Vadra, in connection with the money laundering probe in a land scam case in Bikaner.

On 20 February, the ED questioned Vadra for about three hours in connection with the PMLA case, after which he excused himself by pleading he was not feeling well. The questioners allowed him to leave after consultation with senior ED officers.
