The Judge said "no requirement to file a formal bail and an anticipatory bail had been granted by session's court. "Magistrates had issues summons and we applied for anticipatory bail which was granted and we just had to appear", said Shashi Tharoor's Counsel Vikas Pahwa.

According to a PTI report, the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal then directed him to furnish a bail bond of Rs one lakh and one surety of like amount as directed by the sessions court and converted the interim relief to regular bail. The Thiruvananthapuram MP, who was summoned as an accused in the case, appeared before the court and informed it that he had already been granted anticipatory bail by a sessions court on July 5.
