Sonia Gandhi ED questioning Highlights: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday questioned Congress president Sonia Gandhi for over three hours on the third day of her deposition in the National Herald newspaper linked money laundering case. No fresh summons were issued, officials said.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police on Wednesday detained Congress leaders, including MP Manish Tewari, as they protested against the ED’s questioning of Sonia Gandhi.
Speaking at a press conference earlier in the day, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot stated, “They called Rahul Gandhi for five days… now they have called Sonia Gandhi for the third time. The ED has created terror in the country.” Veteran leader Anand Sharma stated that laws shouldn’t be “weaponised” to “target and humiliate”, while Ghulam Nabi Azad said the ED should bear in mind Sonia’s age and health issues.
