Robert Vadra has hinted at joining politics, a month after his wife Priyanka Gandhi made her debut in active politics and was appointed a general secretary in the Congress party.
The ED case against Robert Vadra relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of alleged illegal assets abroad and an alleged land scam in Bikaner, Rajasthan.
Robert Vadra was questioned by the ED in this case for 23 hours over three days of deposition earlier this month.
Justice P S Bhati posted the hearing for March 15 after Vadra's lawyer gave an assurance in the court that he will cooperate with the inquiry.
Robert Vadra was present at the court for the first time in connection with a money laundering case being probed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
The court had on February 2 granted him interim bail till February 16 and asked him to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and cooperate in the investigation.
Last week, the ED had quizzed Robert Vadra in Delhi for three days in connection with a money laundering probe against him for allegedly procuring assets abroad in an illegal manner.
Vadra arrived at the ED office on Bhawani Singh road at 10.26 am in a vehicle amid tight security.
Vadra was interrogated for over eight hours by the Enforcement Directorate in Jaipur on Tuesday in connection with an alleged land scam in Bikaner.
Robert Vadra wrote an emotional Facebook post expressing his firm belief in God which will help him tide over tough times ahead.
Last week, Priyanka Gandhi had come out strongly in support of her husband, whom she had dropped off at the Enforcement Directorate's office on the first day of questioning.
Tuesday's appearance before the ED in Jaipur is directed by the Rajasthan HC which asked Vadra and his mother to cooperate with the agency after they approached it seeking directions that no coercive action is taken against them by the agency.
Robert Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi and husband of AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi, was questioned for about eight hours by the ED on Saturday as he appeared before the agency for the third consecutive day.
Vadra is also expected to depose before the ED on February 12 in Jaipur in another money-laundering case related to a land scam in Bikaner.
Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi claimed that the charges against Vadra are "fickle, superficial, non-existent, non-substantive".
Robert Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, was Wednesday questioned by Enforcement Directorate (ED) in its money laundering probe into alleged possession of illegal foreign assets.
After leaving Robert Vadra to the ED office, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra left the ED office.
Delhi court grants interim bail to Robert Vadra till Feb 16 in money laundering case.
