ED questions Rahul Gandhi for fifth day in National Herald money laundering case
Gandhi, 52, arrived at the ED headquarters on APJ Abdul Kalam Road in central Delhi at 11:15 AM
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate for the fifth day of questioning in the National Herald money laundering case.
Gandhi, 52, arrived at the ED headquarters on APJ Abdul Kalam Road in central Delhi at 11:15 AM along with his security escort.
A strong contingent of police and paramilitary personnel was deployed around the federal agency's office even as Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) has been imposed in the area.
The Congress MP from Wayanad has spent about 42 hours at the ED office over the last four sittings with the investigators, where he was questioned over multiple sessions and his statement recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
He was questioned for three consecutive days last week, and after Monday's questioning, he was asked to rejoin the session and complete the recording of his statement.
Gandhi left the agency office after midnight on Monday.
The probe pertains to alleged financial irregularities in the Congress-promoted Young Indian Private Limited, which owns the National Herald newspaper.
