ED attaches assets worth Rs 4.62 crore of Robert Vadra's firm in Bikaner land scam

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday attached assets worth Rs 4.62 crores of M/s Sky Light Hospitality (P) Ltd (Now LLP), a company linked to Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi's husband Robert Vadra, in connection with the alleged Bikaner land scam case.

"The attached assets include movable assets amounting to Rs 18,59,500 pertaining to four individuals and one immovable property situated at 268, Sukhdev Vihar in New Delhi to the extent of Rs 4,43,36,550 owned by Robert Vadra's company Ms Sky Light Hospitality (P) Ltd (now LLP)," the agency said.

The ED issued a provisional order for attachment under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The agency has filed charge sheet in this case against 9 accused and the total attachment, in this case, stands at Rs 6.44 crore now.

Last week, the Enforcement Directorate had grilled Vadra in this case in Jaipur twice. His mother Maureen was also interrogated but was allowed to go after completion of brief legal procedures.

The ED had registered a case in connection with the deal in 2015, taking cognisance of a clutch of FIRs and chargesheets filed by the Rajasthan Police after the Bikaner tehsildar complained about alleged forgery in land allotment.
