Robert Vadra, his mother’s request against arrest was rejected, but they get some relief

In a big setback to Robert Vadra, Rajasthan High Court on Thursday rejected his petition against Enforcement Directorate in the Bikaner land purchase scam. The court of Justice P S Bhati, however, extended a stay on his arrest for two more weeks to allow him to appeal in a Higher Court.

Robert Vadra, the husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi, faces an investigation over a purchase of land in Bikaner’s Kolayat by Sky Light Hospitality LLP. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had filed an ECIR (Enforcement Case Information Report) based on a complaint regarding the purchase of 275 bighas of land in Kolayat. The land was purchased in the name of the driver of a mediator, Mahesh Nagre, using a cheque given by Robert Vadra.

Additional Solicitor General R D Rastogi, who is representing the ED, said the court has rejected the writ petition by Vadra to quash the ECIR. The ED had issued a summons to Robert Vadra and his mother Maureen Vadra, who are partners at the Sky Light Hospitality LLP in November 2018 but none of them appeared before the agency. Instead, they moved the High Court, seeking a “no coercive action” order and a stay on the arrest.

The petition was opposed by the additional solicitor general, who stated that an ex-parte stay had been in force since 2018 and an application had been filed by the ED for custodial interrogation of Robert Vadra. He further stated that the Supreme Court had already decided the issues in favor of the ED.

Rastogi argued that filing the writ petition challenging the action of the ED was an abuse of the process of the court and it is a case of money laundering. The hearing in the case was completed on Wednesday and the order was reserved for Thursday.

Robert Vadra is facing another case by ED involving deals with fugitive arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari.[1]

    The Supreme Court needs to take up cases involving politicians and their kin and their connections and deliver justice. Then only will a politician in India have thoughts of doing their real job. Now these politicians are able to kick the can for a life time and continue to defraud the citizens
