    Hi Swathi,

    You cannot access the RadTabItem you have selected last by the EventArgs in a TabControl event handlers. You have to implement your own custom logic like so:
    public partial class MainWindow : Window
           private RadTabItem lastSelectedItem;
           public MainWindow()
               lastSelectedItem = null;
           private void tabControl_SelectionChanged(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
               if (lastSelectedItem != null)
                   MessageBox.Show("Last Selected item: " + lastSelectedItem.Header.ToString());
               lastSelectedItem = this.tabControl.SelectedItem as RadTabItem;
    Hope this fits in your scenario. Feel free to ask if you need further assistance.

    Best wishes,
