Yeddyurappa had sought relaxation of the condition as per which he should seek prior permission of the court if he has to travel out of Bangalore.
Justice Subhash B Adi granted the relaxation while directing CBI to intimate Yeddyurappa, his two sons and son-in-law 24 hours in advance .
Meanwhile, the other three accused in the case -- his two sons BY Vijayendra, BY Raghavendra and son-in-law RN Sohan Kumar were also granted relaxation in the anticipatory bail condition with a similar direction to the CBI.

Earlier, all four filed individual affidavits stating they would be available whenever required by CBI for investigation.
The affidavits were filed by their senior counsels Ashok Haranahally and Prabhuling K Navadgi.
