Enforcement Directorate Charge Sheet Involves Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Robert Vadra in Land Transactions

X: @the_news_21

The recent charge sheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate has thrust Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her husband, businessman Robert Vadra, into the spotlight regarding the acquisition and subsequent disposal of a five-acre plot in Haryana. While both individuals have been mentioned in the charge sheet, they have not been formally designated as “accused.”

The charge sheet primarily focuses on C.C. Thampi, a non-resident Indian (NRI) businessman, and Sumit Chadha, a British citizen of Indian descent. It details Thampi’s acquisition of approximately 486 acres of land between 2005 and 2008 in the village of Amipur, District Faridabad in Haryana, facilitated by H.L. Pahwa, a real estate agent based in Delhi-NCR.

Notably, Robert Vadra is implicated in the acquisition of three parcels of land totaling 334 kanals (40.08 acres) in Amipur from Pahwa between 2005 and 2006. Subsequently, Vadra sold this land back to H.L. Pahwa in December 2010.

In a similar vein, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra purchased agricultural land measuring 40 kanals (5 acres) in the same village from Pahwa in April 2006. Later, she sold the same plot back to Pahwa in February 2010.

The charge sheet highlights irregularities in the financial transactions, indicating instances where cash was exchanged off the books for land acquisition. Furthermore, it suggests that Robert Vadra did not fulfill the entire sale consideration to Pahwa, an aspect still under investigation.

The document also elucidates a close and intertwined relationship between C.C. Thampi and Robert Vadra, emphasizing not only a personal connection but also shared business interests between them. Evidence pointing to their association has been detailed, including statements made by Thampi during the investigation under Section 50 of PMLA.

Thampi’s statement, recorded on June 19, 2019, reveals his acquaintance with Robert Vadra spanning over a decade. He indicates being initially introduced to Vadra by Madhavan, the Personal Assistant to Sonia Gandhi, and recalls several meetings with Vadra during his visits to the UAE.

The revelations in the charge sheet underscore the complex interlinkages and financial dealings concerning the land transactions involving the Vadra family and individuals like C.C. Thampi. The ongoing investigations and the nature of these relationships are likely to draw significant attention as the legal proceedings progress further.
