Robert Vadra

A Delhi court Wednesday reserved for June 3 its order on application of Robert Vadra, accused in a money laundering case, to travel abroad. 

IndiaTvNews.com takes a look at the cases where Robert Vadra's name is involved. 

Foreign assets case

The case relates to ownership of 1.9 million pounds of overseas assets in by Vadra between 2005 and 2010. It pertains to undisclosed foreign assets and entities meant to evade tax.

He was accused of the "ultimate beneficiary" of London residencies and six flats which it alleged were bought by his associates through suspect companies, some of which are allegedly owned by absconding arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari and the UAE-based businessman CC Thampi.

Money laundering case

ED has also alleged that Vadra with his associates received kickbacks in a petroleum deal which was signed in 2009 during UPA's regime. The profit gained in this deal was allegedly used to buy the plush properties in London. 

Haryana land deal

Robert Vadra along with former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda came into ED's radar in 2018 when a FIR was filed against them under the Prevention of Corruption Act and IPC's multiple sections. Vadra's Skylight Hospitality bought land in various places in Gurgaon and sold them at much higher rates than the prevalent market rates. 

Bikaner Money laundering

In 2015, ED had registered a case against Skylight Hospitality in Kolayat, Bikaner at very cheap price and allegedly sold it to Allegenery Finlease for Rs 5.15 crore. Vadra had bought the land, which was meant for rehabilitating poor villagers, through illegal transactions. According to ED's further investigation, Allengenery Finlease was a fictitious company and had no real business.
