The Rajasthan High Court on Monday gave relief to Rober Vadra, the husband of AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi, by extending the stay on his arrest and directed him to cooperate in the inquiry by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) into a complaint of alleged money laundering against a firm linked to him.
Justice Pushpendra Singh Bhati posted the hearing for March 15 after Vadra’s lawyer gave an assurance in the court that he will cooperate with the inquiry. Vadra has appeared before the ED on February 12 in Jaipur in pursuance of the direction of the court and has been cooperating in the inquiry, said his counsel Kuldeep Mathur in the court.
The court then deferred the hearing in the matter and said the stay on arrest of Vadra without court’s permission will continue. During the last hearing on January 21, the court had removed the clause of No Coercive Action against Vadra during inquiry but had refused to vacate the stay on his arrest.
