New Delhi: Robert Vadra on Saturday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in a money laundering case for the third consecutive day.

Vadra arrived at the central probe agency’s office at Jamnagar House in central Delhi at about 10.45 am in his private vehicle.

Officials said the investigating officer (IO) of the case required Vadra to answer more questions in connection with the case and hence was asked to depose on Saturday, after his two sessions of questioning on February 6 and 7.

While Vadra was grilled for the first time for about five-and-a-half hours, he was questioned the second time for about 9 hours.

Vadra has also  shared documents with the investigating officer of the case and has assured some more will be provided as and when he gets them, official sources had said.

The ED case against Vadra relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property worth 1.9 million pounds. His statement will be recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

Last week, a Delhi court had directed Vadra to appear before the central probe agency and cooperate in the probe after he approached it seeking anticipatory bail in the money laundering case.
