Congress leader Rahul Gandhi left the Enforcement Directorate office in Delhi after 12 hours of questioning in a money laundering case on Tuesday. The Wayanad MP has so far been questioned for nearly 50 plus hours in five days.
He was questioned for 10 hours yesterday too, and for 30 hours last week from Monday to Wednesday. Before the ED probe resumed yesterday, he was allowed some days’ break to be with his ailing mother, Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
Sonia Gandhi, who was discharged yesterday after treatment of post-Covid complications, has also been summoned by the ED but given time till June 23.
The ED is investigating the Gandhis’ role in what is known as the National Herald case. It involves the Young Indian’s takeover of AJL (Associated Journals Limited), the company that ran the National Herald newspaper, a Congress mouthpiece which has since transformed into an online-only outlet.
