The Enforcement Directorate on Friday conducted raids at the premises of some close associates of Robert Vadra, son-in-law of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, according to his lawyer Suman Jyoti Khaitan.

Vadra, a businessman, is being investigated by the ED in connection with a land deal in Bikaner in Rajasthan.


Khaitan claimed that the ED officials raided "close associates" and business partners of Vadra in Delhi without even showing any search warrants.


They locked up the premises from inside and are not allowing any access to those inside, even to the lawyers, he alleged.


"Is this rule of law?... Evidence has been fabricated," he alleged while speaking to reporters.


He said a newspaper had reported that that three summons had been served on Vadra by the ED but "we have received none."
