Robert Vadra on Wednesday moved the Delhi High Court seeking quashing of an FIR registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case in which he has been questioned by the probe agency.

Mr. Vadra, brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, has also sought to declare various provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 as ultra vires to the Constitution. His plea has been listed for hearing on March 25.

A Delhi court had on Tuesday extended Mr. Vadra’s interim protection from arrest till March 25 in the case.

The ED case relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property at 12, Bryanston Square, worth 1.9 million pounds. The property is allegedly owned by Mr. Vadra.
