New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi reached the office of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on the third consecutive day on Wednesday for questioning in an alleged money laundering case related to the National Herald newspaper.
Rahul Gandhi was interrogated for nearly 11 hours on Tuesday (Day 2), following which he and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra met their mother Sonia Gandhi at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital late in the night. Sonia Gandhi is admitted to the hospital with Covid-related complications. She is slated to appear before the ED on June 23.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police detained Congress workers and leaders on Wednesday morning who have been protesting at the national capital since Monday against the ED summons to Rahul and Sonia Gandhi.
Keeping in mind Congress’s protest march in the national capital on Monday, the police and paramilitary forces have been deployment in large numbers near the Congress headquarters in Delhi. Barricades have been put up to prevent movement of Congress workers.
Meanwhile, during the questioning, nobody, apart from ED employees will be allowed to enter the agency’s office and security forces are keeping an eye around the area to ensure Congress workers do not get to create a ruckus like Monday.
Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Wednesday told a media organisation that the protests will continue as long as Rahul Gandhi is being questioned by the ED. The protests, which are continuing across the country, might even be escalated, he added.
