Officials of the Income Tax Department are recording the statement of Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, in connection with the benami property case, ANI reports citing sources. Earlier, the Income Tax department had summoned Vadra to record his statements but he did not turn up citing Covid-19 pandemic. Following this, I-T sleuths today reached his home to record his statement.

News agency PTI citing sources said Vadra was asked to join the probe at the tax authority’s office but as he cited Covid restrictions, a team of officials visited his premises in Delhi’s Sukhdev Vihar area. A department team has gone to record Vadra’s statement under the provisions of the Prohibition of Benami Property Transactions Act, sources told PTI.

The I-T has been probing Vadra, the husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, on charges of alleged possession of some undisclosed assets in the UK. The Enforcement Directorate too is investigating these charges, under the anti-money laundering law, against the businessman.
