New Delhi: A day after questioning Rahul Gandhi for more than ten hours in an alleged money laundering case, the Enforcement Directorate has summoned the Congress member again on Tuesday.
The Enforcement Directorate had summoned Rahul Gandhi and his mother, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi earlier, for questioning in alleged money laundering case linked to the National Herald newspaper.
The agency filed the money laundering case recently after a trial court took note of a private complaint against Young Indian Pvt Ltd.
The private complainant had levelled allegations of cheating, conspiracy, and criminal breach of trust in the purported acquisition of the Associated Journals Limited-++ which ran the newspaper- by Young Indian Pvt Ltd.
Congress has alleged that the questioning is part of the ruling BJP’s “vendetta politics”.
Gandhi’s questioning started this morning amid a police crackdown on a massive Congress protest.
Congress had planned protests across the country outside the offices of the Enforcement Directorate. In Delhi, senior members including party MPs were to march with Gandhi from the party office to the offices of the ED.
But the Delhi Police, which had refused permission for the protest march last evening, started action early this morning, rounding up Congress members
