New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday allowed Robert Vadra, accused in a money laundering case, to travel abroad for six weeks.

Special Judge Arvind Kumar allowed him to travel to the US and the Netherlands for six weeks and asked him to submit his travel schedule. The court, however, did not allow Vadra, brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, to go to London.

During the arguments, Vadra's counsel KTS Tulsi told the court that Vadra will not go to London, as per his earlier prayer, if the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had an objection.

Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta and Advocate Nitesh Rana, appearing for the ED, had opposed Vadra's plea in which he had sought permission to travel to the UK and other countries citing health reasons.

Vadra is facing allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a property in London at 12, Bryanston Square, worth GBP 1.9 million.
