The congressman was previously issued a notice to appear on June 8, but was summoned to June 23 after he was found infected with coronavirus. The ED had questioned Sonia Gandhi’s son and former Congress President Rahul Gandhi in this case for over 50 hours in several sessions spanning five days. The investigation concerns alleged financial irregularities in the congressional-sponsored Young Indian Pvt Ltd, which owns the National Herald newspaper.
The interrogation of Sonia, Rahul, began late last year after the ED filed a new case under criminal sections of the Money Laundering Prevention Act (PMLA).
