Sources in the probe agency said they have got new evidences in the benami (illegal) property case and this is why, the businessman has been called for questioning again.
Investigators claim that Robert Vadra, directly or indirectly, owns nine properties in London cumulatively worth around 12 million pounds. Three of these are villas, the rest, luxury flats. All these were purchased between 2005 and 2010, when the Congress-led UPA government was in power.
The allegations involve the purchase of a mansion at 12, Bryanston Square in London, which has an estimated value of 1.9 million pounds. Robert Vadra has also been battling allegations of shadowy land deals in Haryana and Rajasthan.
Robert Vadra recently approached a trial court seeking permission to travel abroad and his request is pending. The trial court, while granting anticipatory bail, had directed him not to leave the country without prior permission and also to join the probe as and when called by the investigating officer.
