Mr Vadra was given a break after over two hours interrogation in the first half of the day and he appeared before the probe agency at around 1435 hours.

The ED case against Vadra relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property located at 12, Bryanston Square worth 1.9 million GBP (British pounds), which is allegedly owned by him. UNI
