New Delhi: 

Businessman Robert Vadra, accused in a money laundering case, has been allowed by a Delhi court to travel abroad for six weeks for treatment of an illness. The court told Mr Vadra to give his travel schedule and to return to India before the deadline. He has been allowed to go to the US and the Netherlands.

Mr Vadra's counsel KTS Tulsi said the businessman will not go to London after the Enforcement Directorate, which is probing the alleged money laundering case against him, objected to his travel request, news agency PTI reported.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and advocate Nitesh Rana, appearing for the probe agency, opposed Mr Vadra's plea in which he had sought permission to travel to the UK and other countries citing health reasons.

Robert Vadra has been told to appear before the Enforcement Directorate again at 10:30 am tomorrow.

The husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra faces allegations of money laundering in buying a property in London worth 1.9 million pounds.

Mr Vadra has denied the allegations of possessing illegal foreign assets and termed them a political witch hunt against him. He said he was being "hounded and harassed" to sub-serve political ends.

Last week, Mr Vadra had skipped his scheduled appearance before the Enforcement Directorate citing cited bad health as the reason.

He was interrogated for five hours on Thursday last and his statement was recorded.

Mr Vadra, in comments on social media, said it was the 11th time he appeared before the probe agency and he has been subjected to 70 hours of questioning so far.
