New Delhi, June 22, 2022: The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday accepted Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s request seeking postponement of her appearance by a few weeks till complete recovery from Covid-19 and lung infection. There is no report yet on a fresh date when she could be summoned.
"Since she’s been strictly advised rest at home following her hospitalisation on account of Covid & lung infection, Congress Pres Sonia Gandhi has written to ED today seeking postponement of her appearance there by a few weeks till she’s recovered completely," tweeted Congress leader Jairam Ramesh.

Gandhi had earlier been scheduled to appear before the ED on June 8 but had sought more time from the probe agency in view of her Covid infection. The agency then issued a fresh summons and asked her to her before it on June 23.
She has been summoned by the ED in the National Herald money laundering case in which her son and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi were questioned for more than 50 hours in five days.
