Robert Vadra’s lawyers have denied the charges, and Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala has said, “Robert Vadra has been systematically prosecuted and hounded by Congress opponents.
The Government’s Investigation is based on the e-mails which have been allegedly sent by Robert Vadra and his executive assistant, Manoj Arora. The reports also include details from the questioning of controversial arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari.
Last month, enforcement agencies raided 18 premises owned by Sanjay Bhandari.
