ED questions Vadra for nine hours on second day

Robert Vadra, Congress president Rahul Gandhi's brother-in-law, was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate officials here for nine hours on Wednesday after he appeared before the agency for the second consecutive day in connection with an alleged land scam in Bikaner district of Rajasthan.

Vadra reached the ED's zonal office at Bhawani Singh road at 10.26 am. He was quizzed for nearly nine hours. He left the ED office at around 8.40 pm for the airport. In between, he was given a one hour lunch break.

Vadra and his mother Maureen appeared before the ED on Tuesday also. While his mother was allowed to go after some time, Vadra was grilled for nearly nine hours. The Rajasthan High Court had asked Vadra and his mother to cooperate with the agency after they approached it seeking directions that no coercive action be taken against them by the ED.
