Robert Vadra says he is being targeted and is being subjected to false prosecution which has a colour of political witch hunt and that he is a law abiding citizen. 

Robert Vadra got some relief on Saturday as Delhi's Patiala House court granted interim bail to him till February 16 in a money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

Special judge Arvind Kumar also directed Vadra to appear before the ED on February 6 and cooperate in the investigation. 

The case relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property - located at 12, Bryanston Square - worth 1.9 million pounds, which is allegedly owned by Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi

A lawyer from the prosecution team confirmed that Vadra has sought anticipatory bail in the case in which his close aide Manoj Arora was granted interim protection from arrest till February 6 by the court.

Vadra says he is being targeted and is being subjected to false prosecution which has a colour of political witch hunt and that he is a law abiding citizen. 

On January 19, the ED had told the court that Arora was cooperating in the probe.

Arora had earlier alleged before the court that the case was foisted on him by the NDA government out of "political vendetta".
