Questioning of Rahul Gandhi By ED Continues On National Herald Case

The questioning of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi by the Enforcement Directorate has once again started after a break of a couple of hours in connection with the National Herald case.

During the lunch break, the Congress leader met his mother Sonia Gandhi, who is currently admitted at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.

According to the sources, during the first round of questioning, Gandhi was asked about his assets and bank accounts in and outside the country. “He was asked about his assets abroad,” sources said.

According to an official, three senior officials of the financial probe agency questioned the former Congress president. “The team consisted of two Assistant Directors and one Deputy Director,” said the official.

Earlier, Gandhi reached the ED office located at Paryavaran Bhavan on Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Road in the city amidst heavy police force that was deployed to restrain party workers from carrying out a rally from Congress HQ to the ED office. On the way, Rahul was accompanied by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, however, she left minutes after they reached the ED office.

Apart from Rahul, his mother and interim Congress president Sonia Gandhi has also been summoned in the same case. She will appear before the financial probe agency on June 23.

Earlier, Top Congress leaders Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, KC Venugopal detained, Deepender S Hooda, and Ashok Gehlot among others, were detained by Delhi Police and taken to the Fatehpur Police Station for protests in support of the Rahul Gandhi.

Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala today said that the ‘Satya ka Sangram’ will continue under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi ahead of his questioning by the ED.

The ED had on Friday issued fresh summons to Sonia Gandhi asking her to appear on June 23 for questioning in connection with the National Herald money laundering case. According to sources, Congress MPs, and Congress Working Committee (CWC) members have also been asked to be present in Delhi on Monday.

Congress leaders, along with party workers, on Monday protested outside the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office where their leader Rahul Gandhi appeared for interrogation in connection with the National Herald case. The people were stopped at least 1 Km before the ED office with the Delhi Police placing a barricade there. The Congress workers sat just before the barricade and raised slogans in favour of their leader and against the present dispensation at the Centre.

“I will say only one thing – Satyamev Jayate (Truth alone triumphs),” Senior Congress leader Harish Rawat, who was present there, said. Amidst heavy security deployment, the Congress leader reached the ED office. There was heavy police deployment in and around the ED office located at Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Road. As he left the party headquarters at 24 Akbar Road, several Congress workers accompanied him.

The police, however, did not allow them to move further and only Rahul Gandhi was permitted. The Congress leader was also accompanied by her sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

Meanwhile, Delhi Police has denied permission for the Congress rally scheduled for Monday (June 13, 2022) against Rahul Gandhi’s questioning by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the National Herald case today. The Delhi Police cited the law and order behind the denial of the permission for the rally.
