Vadra and his mother Maureen will be questioned at the ED's Jaipur office in connection with the Bikaner land case investigation. The mother-son duo arrived in Jaipur on Monday.

On 22 January, the Rajasthan High Court's Jodhpur bench had directed Vadra, Maureen and his partners in Sky Light Hospitality to appear before the ED on 12 February to respond to the allegations of money laundering involving his firm.

In November 2018, the ED had, for the third time, issued summons to Vadra and his mother, a partner in the firm, for questioning but none of them appeared. Instead, they moved the high court seeking a "no coercive action" order and stay of their arrest.

A money laundering case was registered by the ED in September 2015, claiming that Sky Light Hospitality had acquired land in Kolayat village of Bikaner, which was meant for the rehabilitation of the poor villagers.

It was alleged that Vadra bought 69.55 hectares of land at a cheaper rate and then sold the land to Allegheny Finlease for Rs 5.15 crore through illegal transactions.
