The notice by the Enforcement Directorate to the Gandhis was served a few days ago. In April, the ED had questioned former Union minister Pawan Bansal and senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge in connection with the money laundering probe into the National Herald case.
The investigation against the Congress leaders was initiated after a probe into a private criminal complaint filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy in 2013. The complaint alleged cheating and misappropriation of funds on part of the Gandhis in the acquisition of the newspaper.
