ED Summons Sonia Gandhi on July 21 in National Herald Case

Guwahati: Congress Sonia Gandhi was called on July 21 by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the case involving the National Herald. The four weeks that Sonia Gandhi has been allowed will finish on July 22.

The ED had agreed to Sonia Gandhi’s written request for a postponement of the summons in June. Sonia had requested in writing that the investigation agency delay her appearance for a few weeks while she fully recovers from Covid-19 and a lung infection.

On June 18, the Congress President was released from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in New Delhi. On June 12, she was sent to the hospital with Covid problems.

Sonia Gandhi has previously been requested to testify before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in relation to a money laundering case. After she tested positive for Covid-19 on June 1, she requested time from the ED despite being scheduled to appear before the agency on June 8.

Sonia Gandhi requested in a letter to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on June 22 that her appearance before the organisation in the National Herald case be delayed until after she had fully recovered from COVID-19.

The agency had called the Congress leader, who had been released from the hospital on June 20, and scheduled an interview for him for June 23 in connection with the money laundering investigation involving the newspaper.

Her son and former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi have previously been questioned by the investigation team for more than five days.

Sonia Gandhi had originally been due to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on June 8 due to her COVID-19 illness. However, she requested an extension from the investigation team. A new summons was then issued by the agency.
