On Day 2 of questioning, Mr Gandhi arrived at the ED headquarters on APJ Abdul Kalam Road in central Delhi around 11.35 am with his "Z+" category CRPF security escort. He was accompanied by his sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
He had left this office at 11:30 pm on Tuesday night after being questioned for over 11 hours.
A huge contingent of police and paramilitary personnel was deployed around the federal agency's office, and prohibitory orders under section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) is in force.
Rahul Gandhi's mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who is currently admitted to a hospital here due to Covid-related issues, has also been summoned by the agency for questioning in the case on June 23.

What the police did at the AICC office this morning was an outrageous violation of liberty- P. Chidambaram (@PChidambaram_IN) June 15, 2022
The police had no search warrant or arrest warrant, yet they entered the office, pulled out Congress leaders and members, including MPs, and threw them on the road
Congress's Sachin Pilot, detained by the police amid the mega protest over Rahul Gandhi's questioning today, told NDTV the kind of force the police have been using on the Congress workers for the last three days "has never been witnessed before".
- The Congress on Wednesday slammed the Centre after police and security forces allegedly entered its party headquarters and picked up some party workers.
- Congress MP Karti P Chidambaram shared a video on Twitter where cops can be seen barging into the party office and carrying away a man, presumably a party worker, as a group of them raise slogans, question the police, and record the incident on their phones.
- Mr Chidambaram said the Delhi police were behaving like the "private militia" of the BJP.
- The police have, however, denied that they entered the Congress headquarters or used any force.
