ED questions Sonia  
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.
She was given no fresh summons amid indications that her questioning has concluded.
With Wednesday’s questioning, Gandhi has been questioned for more than 11 hours over three days and faced around 100 questions, officials said. Her first round of questioning took place on July 21.
Gandhi reached the federal agency’s office in central Delhi at 11 am accompanied by her daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and son Rahul Gandhi. The session began around 11.15 am. The team of investigators included the main probe officer and a person who took down statements dictated by the Congress chief.
Sonia Gandhi left the ED office around 2 pm along with Vadra, who stayed with her at the ‘Pravartan Bhawan’ (ED headquarters) in order to provide any assistance or medical care to her mother.
The questioning pertains to the charge of alleged financial irregularities in the Congress-promoted Young Indian Private Limited, which owns the ‘National Herald’ newspaper. Congress MPs staging protest at Vijay Chowk against investigative agencies were detained by police.
