According to Kumar, he requested that the ED give him some time and then call for the interrogation, but the relevant officer was not ready to give him and his brother any respite but rather asked them to appear before the agency on the scheduled date.

He further claimed ED has lots of questions regarding the National Herald case and donations made by his family members to Young Indian Private Limited, a trust headed by Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi.
