However, the court has dismissed the plea of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking to assist the court in the matter. The court also refused to make the Delhi police vigilance report public but it has asked the police to keep it safe for future need.

Tharoor had moved the court seeking anticipatory bail which was granted by the court on July 5 last year. He was also summoned by the Patiala House Court on later on July 7.
