After Robert Vadra, Priyanka Gandhi named in ED chargesheet | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been named in an Enforcement Directorate (ED) chargesheet for her role in the acquisition and subsequent sale of a five-acre agricultural land in Haryana’s Faridabad.
The land transaction took place in 2006, where Priyanka reportedly purchased the property from Delhi-based real estate agent HL Pahwa and later sold it back to him in February 2010.
This comes two days after the agency named her husband Robert Vadra in chargesheet in a money laundering case. The ED accused him of renovating and staying at a London property linked to a money laundering case against alleged middleman Sanjay Bhandari.The case is linked to the larger probe involving fugitive arms dealer Bhandari. The investigation focuses on money laundering, violations of foreign exchange and black money laws, and the Official Secrets Act.
Responding to the chargesheet, AAP chief national spokesperson Priyanka Kakkar said, “We have been seeing that ED is continuously taking actions against opposition leaders and some of our leaders are in jail. The law of ‘guilty until proven innocent’ applies to the opposition, whereas the law of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ applies to the entire country”. Meanwhile, Maharashtra Congress president Nana Patole slammed BJP saying, “BJP is a party that is scared of Congress. The British were scared of Gandhi then and even today the central govt is scared of the Gandhi family. BJP is trying to divert people from the real issues.” Congress leader Pawan Khera also shared his opinion and said, “Look at what they’ll do ahead of the elections, it’s just the beginning. They are not doing it for the first time, they do such conspiracies when elections approach. Let them do consipracies. “
The ongoing investigation reveals the creation of entities by Robert Vadra, including Sky Light Hospitality Pvt Ltd and Sky Light Realty Pvt Ltd in India, along with Sky Lite Investment FZE in the UAE, where CC Thampi is listed as the sole shareholder.
The chargesheet also mentions that Vadra incorporated an entity called Blve Breeze Trading Pvt Ltd, later converted into an LLP. However, the email address associated with the entity corresponds to communication with Beena, an employee of CC Thampi in Dubai, regarding a property in London.
Thampi, arrested in January 2020, reportedly acknowledged knowing Vadra for more than 10 years, having met during the latter’s visits to the UAE and in Delhi.
