ED summons Robert Vadra in land fraud case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned businessman and brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Robert Vadra, in the Bikaner land deal case.  The case pertains to a land in Kolayat area of Rajasthan’s Bikaner meant for those displaced due to the Army’s field firing range.

The ED had registered a criminal case under the PMLA in the matter in 2015. The Rajasthan government had cancelled the mutation of 374.44 hectares of land after the land department claimed to have found that the allotments were made in the names of “illegal private persons”.

Vadra is embroiled in another similar case in Gurugram in which FIR was filed against him, DLF and former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda at Kherki Daula police station for a 2008 land deal.

Earlier, Vadra took to social media forum Facebook alleging that it was the Plan B of the BJP to drag his name in controversies to distract public attention from its governance failures.
