New Delhi: Robert Vadra, son-in-law of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, on Wednesday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering case against him.

Vadra's wife and newly-appointed Congress general secretary for East Uttar Pradesh region Priyanka Gandhi Vadra accompanied him to the ED office and left after dropping him there.

The Patiala House Court had granted interim bail to Vadra on Saturday till February 16 in connection with the money laundering case.

During the course of the hearing, the ED had told the court that they had learned about more overseas properties related to Vadra and hence, said he should join the probe. It also said Vadra and his associates got kickbacks in the petroleum deal inked in 2009. (ANI)
