sonia gandhi: National Herald case: ED summons Sonia Gandhi on June 23 | India News



NEW DELHI: The Law Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday summoned Congresswoman Sonia Gandhi for questioning in connection with a money laundering case involving the National Herald newspaper.
Sonia Gandhi, who was due to appear in the emergency room on June 8, had requested an additional three weeks in the wake of her Covid-19 infection.
Meanwhile, the party was planning to stage protests in the capital, including a march to the office of the enforcement agency, days before Congressman Rahul Gandhi was scheduled to appear before the ED.
Congress also called all its MPs and senior officials to the Akbar Road headquarters on Monday morning and they are expected to participate in the march to coincide with Rahul’s visit to the agency office. In addition, a meeting of heads of state will be held on Thursday to finalize a program of events across the country. So far, there was no indication that the party would take to the streets to protest against ED’s decision against the Gandhis.
The ED alleged money laundering in the Herald-AJL debt settlement carried out by its leadership that implicates the leadership of Congress. But Congress dismissed the charges, arguing that there was no transfer of assets and no exchange of money, for there to be any money laundering. Congress accused the ruling BJP of filing a baseless complaint out of political vendetta.
