In a relief to Robert Vadra, a CBI Special Court on Monday allowed Vadra to travel to the United States and the Netherlands for treatment.

Vadra, brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi is an accused in a money-laundering case.

However, the court has not granted permission to Vadra to travel to London as he is facing investigation by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with his London properties and his association with arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari.

Vadra had filed a plea seeking permission to travel to London, citing medical reasons. Vadra claimed that he has a tumour in his large intestine and needs to travel to London for treatment.

On Wednesday, Vadra appealed that his passport be released so that he can travel to London for diagnosis and further treatment.

During a hearing of his appeal to fly abroad, Robert Vadra submitted a medical certificate from Delhi’s Gangaram Hospital that he has a tumour in his large intestine.

Vadra, facing investigation in a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), was directed on April 1 not to leave the country without prior permission by a court which had granted him anticipatory bail while imposing several other conditions.
