Interim Protection From Arrest To Robert Vadra’s Aide Manoj Arora Till February 6

ED’s Special Public Prosecutor sought two more weeks for arguments on the application

New Delhi: 

A Delhi court on Saturday extended till February 6 the interim protection from arrest granted to Manoj Arora, a close aide of Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra, in a money laundering case.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) told Special Judge Arvind Kumar that Arora was cooperating in the probe.

“He joined the probe yesterday. So far he is cooperating,” Special Public Prosecutor D P Singh, appearing for the ED, said.

ED’s Special Public Prosecutor Nitesh Rana sought two more weeks for arguments on the application which was allowed by the court.

Mr Rana said it remained to be seen if Manoj Arora would cooperate further.

The case relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property — located at 12, Bryanston Square — worth 1.9 million pounds, which is allegedly owned by Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

In the last hearing, Mr Arora had alleged before the court that the case was foisted on him by the NDA government out of “political vendetta”.

However, the ED refuted the allegations, asking that “should no authority investigate any political bigwig because that will be called a political vendetta?”

The agency had told the court that it lodged the money laundering case against Mr Arora after his role came up during the probe of another case by the Income Tax Department under the newly-enacted Black Money Act and tax law against absconding arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari.

It said the London-based property was bought by Bhandari for GBP 1.9 million and sold in 2010 for the same amount despite incurring additional expenses of approximately GBP 65,900 on its renovation.

“This gives credence to the fact that Bhandari was not the actual owner of the property but it was beneficially owned by Vadra who was incurring expenditure on the renovation of this property,” the ED had told court.

Mr Arora, an employee of Robert Vadra’s Skylight Hospitality LLP, was a key person in the case and he was aware of the latter”s overseas undeclared assets and was instrumental in arranging funds, it had said.

Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora

Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora on Friday lamented that Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) were being treated like a “football” by parties suffering electoral losses, and said the voting equipment was foolproof as far as fears of manipulation were concerned.

Talking to reporters upon the conclusion of his two-day tour of Bihar, the CEC, heading a team of the poll panel, said though EVMs could suffer occasional technical snags, they were promptly fixed.

“It is not possible to manipulate the EVMs. It is definitely foolproof as far as apprehensions of conspiracy and manipulation are concerned. But technical snags are possible as in case of any other device,” he said.

“But the incidence of snags has been very low. In the recent assembly polls in five states, 1.76 lakh EVMs were installed out of which only six reported malfunction. The complaints were promptly taken care of,” Mr Arora claimed.

Asked about apprehensions expressed about EVMs by several parties, he said they had noticed that whenever a party lost an election it started having complaints about EVMs which vanished the moment it won.

“It is my request to all, please do not make EVMs a football,” he said.

He said VVPATs were introduced to address the misgivings that people might have about EVMs.

“The Lok Sabha polls would see the use of these on a still larger scale. The Election Commission is committed to holding the elections in a free and fair manner,” he said.

Replying to a query regarding the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, he said once all preparations are complete and the election schedule drawn, the EC would announce it at a press conference in New Delhi.

He also said during the EC team’s tour of Bihar, instructions were issued for completing the revision of electoral rolls by January 31.

Earlier, on Thursday upon its arrival in the city, the EC team had interacted with representatives of various political parties which had come up with suggestions to improve the poll process.

While the RJD had come out strongly against the EVMs and advocated reverting to the use of ballot papers, the JD(U) had stressed on making VVPATs available at every polling booth.

The CPI came up with an elaborate list of suggestions which included limiting the number of voters in a booth to 800 and setting up mobile polling stations which could be of help to those having difficulty in travelling to their respective booths.

The BJP requested that complaints of anomalies in electoral rolls be seriously looked into and resolved.

‘Hmm,’ Malaika Arora. Have You Seen Arjun Kapoor’s Comment On Your Throwback Post?

New Delhi: 

Because it’s Thursday, Malaika Arora treated her Instafam to a throwback picture of herself and the caption suggests that it appears to be taken during one of her holidays. “Take me back. Happiness,” she wrote, adding a heart emoticon and the hashtag ‘Throwback Thursday.’ Guess who was the first celeb to comment on her post? Yes, you are absolutely right if your answer is Arjun Kapoor, whom Malaika is reportedly dating. “Hmm,” is how Arjun reacted to her photo, in which she looks pretty in a floral printed dress and sports a million dollar smile. Apart from Arjun, stars like Twinkle Khanna, Neha Dhupia, Abhishek Bachchan, Farah Khan and others have liked Malaika Arora’s Throwback Thursday post.

Take a look.




Screenshot of Arjun’s comment


A section of the Internet thinks that the picture was taken in Italy, where Malaika celebrated her 45th birthday in October. It was reported that Arjun had also accompanied Malaika to Italy, but they refrained from getting photographed together at the Mumbai airport on their return.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday evening, Malaika partied with her close friends Kareena Kapoor, Karisma, sister Amrita Arora and filmmaker Karan Johar at his residence. Arjun Kapoor too joined the party.

On Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan 6, Arjun Kapoor confirmed that he is ‘dating’ someone. “A lot that has happened in the family over the last few months and also with me, which has given perspective for me to answer this. I finally feel like I have a sense of belonging and a family,” he said.

Malaika Arora was previously married to actor-filmmaker Arbaaz Khan. They are parents to son Arhaan.

On the work front, Arjun is currently filming Panipat. Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and India’s Most Wanted are his upcoming releases.

खास बातें

  1. मलाइका अरोड़ा ने पोस्ट किया 18 साल पुराना वीडियो
  2. फराह खान ने किया कमेंट
  3. फैन्स बोले, शायद नाराज हो गईं

नई दिल्ली:

मलाइका अरोड़ा (Malaika Arora) ने अपने इंस्टाग्राम (Instagram) एकाउंट पर अपने सबसे पहले म्यूजिक वीडियो या कहें 18 साल पुराने वीडियो को डाला तो बॉलीवुड डायरेक्टर-कोरियोग्राफर फराह खान कुंदेर (Farah Khan Kunder) ने कमेंट करते हुए सारी लिमिट क्रॉस कर दी और सारे जायके को ही बिगाड़ दिया. मलाइका अरोड़ा (Malaika Arora) ने अपने इंस्टाग्राम एकाउंट पर पंजाबी सिंगर मलकीत सिंह के सुपरहिट सॉन्ग ‘गुड़ नाल इश्क मीठा’ पर अपने वीडियो को डाला था. मलाइका अरोड़ा इस वीडियो से सुर्खियों में आई थीं. लेकिन मलाइका अरोड़ा की तारीफ करने और अपने तीखे तंज के लिए मशहूर फराह खान ने कुछ ऐसा लिख दिया जो शायद (Malaika Arora) को पसंद नहीं आया. तभी उन्होंने न तो इस कमेंट को लाइक किया और न ही कोई कमेंट किया.

Malaika Arora Is Drinking This Probiotic Drink; 3 Reasons Why You Should Too


  • Malaika Arora is known for her style and fashion sense
  • Malaika Arora shared a story on Instagram where she was drinking kombucha
  • Kombucha tea is also known as probiotic tea or mushroom tea

Bollywood actress, model and reality TV show host Malaika Arora is known for her style and fashion sense. She has fans and followers across the world and her social media pages are proof of that. The diva has more than seven million followers on Instagram, where she keeps sharing her life updates. She also shares pictures of healthy foods and drinks along with her fitness videos that give us fitness goals to aim for. Recently, the beauty shared a story on Instagram where she was drinking kombucha. Kombucha is a fermented, lightly fizzy, little alcoholic, and sweetened dark-hued tea, which is known for many health benefits.

Take a look:


Malaika Arora Instagrammed a picture of kombucha tea.

These days a lot of people are pouring themselves a cup or two of kombucha tea, which is also known as probiotic tea or mushroom tea. This is because the brewing process of this tea causes the bacteria and yeast to grow into a mass that resembles to mushroom head. This probiotic drink is acidic in nature and is full of antioxidants, B vitamins and a little bit alcohol, which comes in as result of the fermentation process. The tea is quite popular in the United States and Europe and can be made easily at home.

Health Benefits of Kombucha Tea:

Boosts Digestion

Kombucha tea is good for digestion. This probiotic tea is known to improve gut health and strengthens immunity. Drinking kombucha tea regularly could help provide relief from indigestion and constipation. It is the presence of glucuronic acid in kombucha drink that aids digestion and helps release digestive enzymes, which further help in better breakdown of nutrients in our body.

Aids Weight loss

For the ones who are looking to lose extra kilos, drinking kombucha tea may help you do that. The probiotic tea is known to boost metabolism, which further facilitates weight loss. Moreover, the drink is low in calories with very less sugar content, making it one of the ideal drinks that can be added to any weight loss diet.

Manages Blood Sugar Levels

Kombucha drink is also known to be great for the ones who have type-2 diabetes. If the findings of recent studies are to be believed, then consuming kombucha drink may help manage blood sugar levels. However, some nutritionists and health experts believe that due to the presence of sugar in kombucha tea, it may be harmful for people with diabetes. Therefore, more research is needed into the potential of kombucha tea for diabetics.

Kombucha tea is a probiotic drink that potentially has many health benefits. However, it is recommended to consult a doctor before you add this to your daily diet.
