Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday took a dig at Enforcement Directorate for giving out the news of sending a notice to a firm linked to her husband Robert Vadra in connection with its probe into alleged money laundering in a land deal in Rajasthan’s Bikaner district.
“Apparently, we have received it at 4 o’clock today but you received it before us,” Priyanka told reporters in the national capital.
A notice has been issued to the firm M/s Skylight Hospitality under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) seeking certain financial statements and other documents, official sources said.
The probe is related to the purchase of 275 bigha land allegedly by the company in the Kolayat area of the border town of Bikaner.
The central probe agency had registered a criminal case of money laundering in this case last year on the basis of FIRs filed by the state police after the local tehsildar had made a complaint.
The Congress and the Gandhis have described the investigations against Vadra as a political witch-hunt.
