Vipin Khanna, father of Aditya Khanna who is being investigated in connection with the Oil-for-Food scam, was detained at the Indira Gandhi International Airport and prevented from leaving for London, official sources said in New Delhi on Monday.
Khanna, whose another son Arvind Khanna is the Congress MLA from Sangroor, was detained on Sunday by the Immigration authorities and handed over to the Enforcement Directorate.
After intensive questioning, mainly about his son Aditya, the senior Khanna was allowed to go home, the sources said.
The ED had asked Vipin to appear before it in connection with the Volcker controversy.
Despite an order cancelling his passport, Aditya, an NRI, managed to leave last week for London where he lives.
A "letter of cancellation" was issued against his passport at the request of the Enforcement Directorate sometime back.
Meanwhile, a Delhi Police sub-inspector, who was on deputation to the Immigration Bureau, has been suspended for allowing Aditya to leave for London.
