The Enforcement Directorate has sequestered assets worth Rs 90 crore from a business connected to Young Indian, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, and Sonia Gandhi as part of the National Herald case inquiry.

“ED has issued an order for provisional attachment of properties worth Rs 751.9 crore in a money-laundering case investigated under PMLA, 2002,” the Enforcement Director tweeted.

In 2012, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy initially brought a private suit before the Patiala House Court in Delhi. Declaring that it was unlawful to pay barely Rs 50 lakh for a firm valued at Rs 2000 crore, he had asked that Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and other prominent Congressmen be charged with crimes in connection with the transaction.
