Robert Vadra, Congress president Rahul Gandhi's brother-in-law, who has been under the scanner of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering case, on Wednesday took to Instagram while taking a dig at the agency officials over style and fitness. Post his hour-long interrogation by the agency, Vadra took to the photo-blogging site and dished out some unique health tips including those for officials in the ED.

"When you have self-belief and determination, an exchange of your energy and ways of being in any atmosphere is a learning n teaching ... a bit of style n health tips for the Agency too," wrote Mr Vadra along with a post-session photograph. Vadra, who is considered to be a fitness freak, regularly goes jogging and cycling around Lodhi Garden and Lutyens Delhi.

The ED case against Vadra relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property, located at 12, Bryanston Square and worth 1.9 million pounds, which is allegedly owned by the businessman in a "benami" way.

On Wednesday, Vadra was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for about three hours in connection with the money-laundering case. The businessman told the investigating officer (IO) of the case that he was not well and hence, the recording of his statement was discontinued. Vadra is expected to join the probe again on Friday.

A group of Vadra's supporters raised slogans in his favour outside the ED office, before being dispersed by the police. Vadra had skipped the summons on Tuesday, citing bad health. He was questioned by the ED sleuths in connection with the case for 23 hours over three days of deposition earlier this month.

On February 16, Delhi’s Patiala House Court extended his interim protection from arrest to March 2.  Vadra had on February 1 moved to Delhi court seeking anticipatory bail in the money laundering case lodged by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
