Natwar’s kin Detained


Vipin Khanna, a kin of disgraced former Foreign Minister Natwar Singh was detained by officials and refused permission to travel abroad although his son and suspect in the oil-for-food scam, Aditya Khanna has escaped to London. Senior Khanna’s another son Arvind is a Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA). A Delhi police official who cleared Aditya’s travel despite a “look out certificate” and a “letter of cancellation” issued by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has been suspended for his “lapse.” Aditya is a non-resident Indian and came to Delhi voluntarily and is “anxious to clear his name.” So far, ED has traced the blood money to Aditya’s bank account in London.

Vipin Khanna was questioned by the ED for his participation in the Iraq Oil-for-Food scam and the nature of his intended visit to London where the spoils of his scam was traced. Immigration authorities stopped Khanna and handed him to the ED. The ED has issued a “search and seizure” notice against Khanna who had gone missing the last few days and surfaced at the airport trying to leave for London. Senior Khanna was asked to appear for further questioning but did not turn up and instead tried to skip the country.
