Special Judge Neelofer Abida Perveen of the Rouse Avenue Court issued a memorandum to Vadra on the occasion, saying: “I am unable to accept the allegation … that the applicant was compelled in the circumstances by medical necessity to attend the UAE to stay while traveling to UK via UAE for the simple reason that the itinerary submitted on 08/22/2022 and the copy of the travel tickets indicate that the applicant intended all the time, from 08/25/2022 to 08/29/2022 to stay in Dubai and then travel to London on 08/29/2022”, the court stated its order.

His lawyers had told the court that Vadra “remained in the United Arab Emirates before embarking on his onward journey because he had deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in his left leg and had been advised to rest adequately between long-haul flights.”

Due to inflammation and pain in his left leg during the trip, he had to stop and seek medical advice on August 27, 27 in Dubai at the LGA Medical Facilitation Center dedicated to traveler medical emergencies, where further medical treatment was recommended to him was , his lawyers had submitted.

“That his stoppage in the UAE during said trip to the UK was not with intent to breach any imposed condition, nor was there any attempt to deceive them, but because of medical necessity,” argued Vadra’s lawyers.
