Congress leader Sonia Gandhi, who appeared before the Enforcement Directorate on Thursday in connection with an alleged money laundering case linked to the National Herald paper, left the agency’s office after three hours of questioning.

Upon reaching the ED’s headquarters at around 12.10 p.m., Sonia was interrogated by a team of additional director Monika Sharma.

During her interrogation, she was accompanied by her son Rahul Gandhi and daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

A few minutes later, Rahul left the ED’s headquarters while Priyanka stayed backed with her mother’s medicine box.

Priyanka had requested to be present at ED’s headquarters with her mother.

Taking Sonia’s health into considering, the ED allowed Priyanka to stay back but in a separate room.

The Congress leader was earlier summoned by the central agency who sought more time owing to her ill-health.

Sources say that she was asked the same set of questions which were asked to Rahul during his five-day questioning, ED sources claimed.

Sonia had problem while speaking

Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi is an asthmatic and due to post Covid complications, she was using Nebulizer to stabilize her breath while being questioned in the Enforcement Directorate on Thursday.

Sources said that Sonia Gandhi is suffering post Covid complications and she had problems while speaking.

Earlier, Priyanka Gandhi had told ED officials that her mother doesn’t keep well, and she was looking after her medicines. She said that she would assist her mother due to her poor health. She had requested the officials to let her be present in the ED office during her questioning which was accepted.

Sources said that Sonia Gandhi’s second round of questioning couldn’t take place due to her poor health.

Now she will join the probe on July 25. There are possibilities that her questioning can go on for a few days like her son Rahul Gandhi.
