Robert Vadra, who was questioned for three days last week by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case, on Sunday said that truth will always prevail.

In a Facebook post, he said, "Morning... just want to say thank you to all my friends and acquaintances who have reached out in support from all over the nation, at this time. I'm fine, good and disciplined to deal with anything, I’m put through.

"Truth will always prevail. Wishing you all a happy Sunday n a healthy week."

Vadra, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi's husband, was questioned for over 23 hours in three days. On Saturday, he was questioned for around eight hours while he was quizzed for about five-and-a-half hours on Wednesday and nine hours on Thursday.

According to the ED, the case relates to money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property — located at 12, Bryanston Square — worth 1.9 million pounds. The property is claimed to be owned by Vadra, which he vehemently denied. While denying any wrongdoing, Vadra has said he was being "hounded and harassed" to subserve political ends.

Vadra is also likely to depose before the ED on February 12 in Jaipur in another money-laundering case related to an alleged land scam in Bikaner. The Rajasthan High Court has directed him to cooperate with the agency in the case.

The questioning of Vadra had political undertones with Priyanka dropping him at the ED office on the first day of joining the investigations. Priyanka has defended her husband saying the whole world knew what was happening, apparently claiming that he was a victim of a political witch-hunt.
