Advocates DP Singh and Nitesh Rana, appearing for ED in the case, argued that Robert Vadra's attempt to get bail is a way to tamper the evidence and meet the co-accused in the case. As far as Vadra is concerned, his counsel advocate K T S Tulsi, rejected ED's claims and said that the case is mainly based on the documents and hence Vadra cannot tamper with the evidence. In June this year, a special CBI court had allowed Vadra to travel abroad on medical grounds for a period of six weeks. (With Agency Inputs)
