Delhi's Patiala House Court granted interim protection to Robert Vadra on Saturday till February 16.

As per reports Robert Vadra's lawyer KTS Tulsi ensured in Court that Vadra will join the ED investigation on February 6 and cooperate in the investigation. 

He further said, “If he gets bail from one High Court, they (agencies) file case in another High Court. If he gets bail there, they file a case in the third court.”

SC advocate Ishkaran Singh Bhandari said Robert Vadra's name was on all airports as an exempted passenger.

The case relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property -- located at 12, Bryanston Square which is worth 1.9 million pounds, which is allegedly owned by Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Vadra had sought anticipatory bail in the case in which his close aide Manoj Arora was granted interim protection from arrest till February 6 by the court.

Vadra said he was being targeted and is being subjected to false prosecution which has a color of a political witch hunt and that he is a law-abiding citizen.

On January 19, the ED had told the court that Arora was cooperating in the probe.

Arora had earlier alleged before the court that the case was foisted on him by the NDA government out of "political vendetta".

However, the ED had refuted the allegations, asking that "should no authority investigate any political bigwig because that will be called a political vendetta?"
