Special CBI Judge Ravinder Kaur permitted Vectra group chief Ravi Rishi to travel to the UK for four weeks, starting June 2, to undergo treatment for a liver ailment.

Rishi, a British national, is an accused in a case involving irregularities in the supply of trucks by his company Tatra Sipox UK to the state-owned Bharat Earth Movers Ltd (BEML).

The court, however, asked Rishi to furnish his contact numbers and address before leaving India and directed him to report to the CBI’s investigating officer, after his return. The court also asked him to abstain from tampering with the evidence and influencing any witness, in any manner. 

The CBI had earlier submitted before the court that it had no objection in allowing Rishi to visit the UK for availing treatment.

The accused had earlier been to the UK from April 21 to May 10, after getting Delhi High Court’s permission, on health grounds.

The court, while allowing Rishi to travel to the UK, referred to the High Court’s order which had said he was entitled to avail treatment from a medical expert of his choice.

“In view of the High Court order, the applicant/accused is permitted to travel only to the UK for a period of four weeks from June 2, 2013...,” the court said.

Rishi, who underwent medical tests during his past visit to the UK, was advised to undergo ‘ultra sound guided liver biopsy’ on June 5.
