Covid: Sonia seeks more time to appear before EDJune 07, 2022 18:29
Congress president Sonia Gandhi has sought more time from the Enforcement Directorate to appear before it as she is still suffering from COVID, party sources said on Tuesday.
They said Gandhi, who tested positive on Thursday, is yet to recover and her latest report is not COVID-negative.
The ED had summoned Gandhi to appear before it on June 8 in connection with a money laundering case linked to the National Herald newspaper-AJL issue.
The ED had also summoned her son and former party chief Rahul Gandhi on June 13 for questioning in the case.
He was earlier asked by the agency to depose on June 2 but the Lok Sabha member from Wayanad constituency in Kerala sought a fresh date as he was out of country.
The federal agency later asked Rahul Gandhi to appear on June 13 at its headquarters in central Delhi.
Congress leaders had earlier claimed that Sonia Gandhi is determined to appear before the ED provided she recovered from the virus. -- PTI
