NEW DELHI: Extending relief to Robert Vadra, a Delhi court on Saturday granted him interim bail till March 2.
However, the court asked him to join the probe whenever he is asked to by the Enforcement Directorate, which is investigating money laundering charges against him.
The ED told the court that it needed to question Vadra in the case and opposed his anticipatory bail plea on the ground of non-cooperation.
Robert Vadra denied the charge and said he was ready to come for questioning as and when called.
Special judge Arvind Kumar accepted his plea and said the interim order of protection from arrest will continue till the next date of hearing.
The court also extended the bail of his close aide and co-accused in the case, Manoj Arora.
Vadra had filed an anticipatory bail application in the case linked to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property.
The ED is probing allegations of money laundering in connection with a case of purchase of illegal property in London and a land scam in Bikaner, Rajasthan.
Earlier in the day, Vadra had called the Enforcement Directorate action “a complete vindictive & vicious witch hunt” in a Facebook post.
“I have had nothing to hide and I am surely not above the law. I have deposed for almost 6 days; ranging from 8 to 12 hours per day with a 40-minute lunch break, and have been escorted to the washroom,” he said.
