The Modi government has adopted hyper-aggressive mode against the scamsters. It has proved that they have the capacity to nab the criminals in whichever part of the world they are hiding. This was proved after powerful middleman during the UPA era, Christian Michel, was extradited to India. The belief that Modi government will drag back corrupts into jail became even more firm after Rajiv Saxena and Deepak Talwar were extradited to India. Later on even the notorious gangster Ravi Poojary was nabbed and Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi are likely to be brought back to India in the next few days.
These developments have rattled the corrupts in India, especially the brother-in-law of Rahul Gandhi, Mr. Robert Vadra. And now Mr Vadra has filed for anticipatory bail in Delhi’s Patiala court fearing arrest in a money laundering case filed by the Enforcement Directorate. This plea is filed before CBI special judge Arvind Kumar and the hearing will take place today (2nd February).
It is said that Robert Vadra purchased a London-based property — located at 12, Bryanston Square — worth 1.9 million pounds and during this the transaction was done was allegedly illegal. Not just Robert Vadra but his close aide Manoj Arora is facing troubles in this case.
Manoj Arora succeeded to extend his anticipatory bail on January 19th till February 6th in the Delhi court. On 7th December the Enforcement Directorate had raided several locations associated to Robert Vadra, including Bangalore and Delhi offices in connection with alleged commissions received by some suspects in defence deals.
Presently the arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari, who is the close aide of Robert Vadra is absconding and it is rumored that even he might be brought back to India in February. Last week Priyanka Vadra Gandhi was appointed as the General Secretary of Uttar Pradesh East by the Congress party and the troubles mounting on her husband has tarnished her image further.
Currently, Robert Vadra’s mother-in-law Sonia Gandhi and brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi are out on bail. Now even he might follow the same path or even jail.
