New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued a summons for the questioning of Vaibhav Gehlot, the son of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, in connection with a case related to suspected violations of foreign exchange regulations, according to official sources.
Vaibhav Gehlot has been asked to appear at the ED’s office, either in Jaipur or New Delhi, on Friday.
These summons are in relation to the recent ED investigations conducted on Rajasthan-based hospitality group Triton Hotels & Resorts Pvt Ltd, as well as Vardha Enterprises Pvt Ltd, and their respective directors and promoters, including Shiv Shankar Sharma and Rattan Kant Sharma, among others. In the month of August, the ED conducted a three-day search operation at various locations, including Jaipur, Udaipur, Mumbai, and Delhi.
The ED is closely examining the alleged connections between Rattan Kant Sharma and Vaibhav Gehlot. The agency is expected to question and record statements under the provisions of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) as part of its investigation. During these searches, unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 1.2 crore was seized by the ED.
