New Delhi, June 1 (Ajit Weekly News) Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the National Herald case, has requested the probe agency to give him some more time to join the investigation.
The ED has summoned both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to join the probe.
Sonia Gandhi has been summoned on June 8 whereas Rahul Gandhi has been summoned on Thursday (June 2). Soon after receiving the summon, Rahul Gandhi wrote to the ED saying he won’t be able to join the probe tomorrow (Thursday).
