New Delhi: After Congress President Sonia Gandhi publicly defended her son-in-law Robert Vadra in his alleged connection with arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari, authorities on Wednesday revealed that Sanjay Bhandari has admitted to receiving emails from Robert Vadra.

The enforcement agencies who were probing arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari and closely studying Bhandari’s email revealed that the arms dealer had received an Email signed by Robert Vadra himself. The authorities said that the email from Vadra dated back to 4th April, 2010.

Concomitantly, with the revelation of the emails, Sanjay Bhandari also confessed that he was in conversation with Robert Vadra. The emails sent to Bhandari were from Vadra’s own email ID, and one of those mails had been signed by Vadra himself, claimed the authorities.

This new development could point at alleged links between Vadra and Bhandari and the former’s link with ‘benami’ properties in London.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi had earlier defended Robert Vadra by saying that the government should conduct a probe and prove his guilt.

Robert Vadra, through his lawyers, claimed that he had no dealings or connection with Bhandari. The husband of Priyanka Gandhi said that the govt’s only agenda was to target the Vadra family intermittently.
