Sonia Gandhi, the Congress president, has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to appear before the agency on June 23 in connection with a money laundering case involving the National Herald newspaper.
She was slated to appear on June 8, but she requested more time due to Covid, according to sources, and she has now been asked to appear on June 23. The ED issued a new summons to Congress Lok Sabha MP Rahul Gandhi a few days ago, requesting that he appear before the agency on June 13.
The ED has summoned Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to appear before it on June 8, according to the Congress. The summons was received “only a few days ago,” according to the Congress, and Sonia will “100%” come before the ED. “If Rahul Gandhi is present, he will go as well.” Otherwise, we would request some time,” said Abhishek Singhvi, a spokesperson for the Congress.
The ED questioned Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge and Pawan Bansal before questioning Sonia and Rahul.
