Prime News, Nation, (New Delhi), February 7:-Robert Vadra, who was grilled by the Enforcement Directorate for several hours on Wednesday, arrived at the agency office for the second round of questioning in connection with a money laundering case on Thursday.

Vadra had appeared before the agency on Wednesday afternoon after which he was questioned for around six hours.

He was accompanied by his wife and Congress general secretary for Uttar Pradesh East, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

She, however, left the ED office after dropping Vadra, who was questioned by the investigating agency for the first time.

A team of seven ED officials of the rank of Deputy Director and Assistant Directors took part in his questioning.

According to an ED official, Vadra was asked questions relating to transactions, purchase and possession of certain immovable assets in London.

The ED’s case relates to the ownership of 1.9 million pounds of undisclosed assets abroad, allegedly belonging to Vadra.

The questioning came in the wake of an order by a Delhi Court on February 2 directing Vadra to appear before the ED for questioning while hearing the anticipatory bail plea filed by him.

The court had on Saturday also granted interim bail to Vadra till February 16.

Earlier in the day, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who accompanied her husband to the ED office made a strong political statement.

“I stand by my family,” she later told reporters at the AICC headquarters where Congress workers shouted slogans hailing her. “Priyanka you fight on, we are with you!”
