Yadav's lawyer assured the court after noting the submissions of CBI that "at this point of time, there is no endeavour to arrest him"
During arguments on Thursday before Delhi High Court, senior advocate Maninder Singh appeared for Tejashwi Yadav and submitted that CBI has been calling him while the budget session is underway.
"I can appear through Video Conferencing. I am constantly telling them that I am a resident of Bihar. I have been served with three summons by the agency in just a few days," Singh said representing Yadav.
CBI advocate DP Singh said, "The budget session is not on Saturday. He (Tejashwi Yadav) was in Delhi during the first summon but he refused to join the investigation. We need his appearance before us as there are documents to be shown," add a CBI lawyer.
The bench of Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma on Thursday after noting the submissions of both sides disposed of the matter and granted liberty to the petitioner to re-approach the court if any grievance occurs in the future in this regard. (with Agency inputs)
