"So here we are my 75-year-old mother and me in Jaipur to depose in front of the Enforcement Directorate. Not understanding the lows of this vindictive government to be harassing a senior citizen, who the world knows has lost her daughter in a car crash, her ailing son to diabetes, and her husband as well. Three deaths and all I did was to ask her to spend time with me in my office, so I can look after her and we both could grieve on our losses, while spending time together," Robert Vadra, 50, posted on Facebook.

"Now she is being accused, maligned and called to be interrogated, for spending time in my office," said the businessman, who has been questioned for three days by the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi.

The businessman added, "This too shall pass and will make me stronger. What goes around comes around. God is with us!!"

"Everything has been examined by the CBI. This is nothing but sheer vendetta. Every leader is being attacked by political vendetta," said Mr Vadra's lawyer KTS Tulsi.

The Rajasthan High Court, told the Vadras last month, to appear before the Enforcement Directorate after they asked the court for protection against any coercive action against them.

A money laundering case was filed by the Enforcement Directorate filed in 2015 following the complaint of a Bikaner land official on illegal land allotment in an area considered sensitive as it is close to the border with Pakistan.

The official alleged that government land in 34 villages of Bikaner for army use was bought illegally at cheap rates through forged documents. The probing agency wants to question Mr Vadra on the alleged role of a firm linked to him, Skylight Hospitality, which had bought land in Bikaner. It has been reported that the company allegedly sold the land at an inflated price.

The businessman, Mr Vadra was questioned in the national capital on another money laundering case involving the purchase of a property in the UK worth 1.9 million pounds (approximately Rs. 17 crore).
