2G case: Court allows A Raja to visit Tamil Nadu
New Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday allowed former telecom minister and 2G case accused, A Raja, to visit Tamil Nadu between June 8 and June 30.
The order came after Raja moved the CBI court in Delhi seeking relaxation of travel restrictions. Raja is currently out on bail in the 2G spectrum case, but is not allowed to visit Tamil Nadu.
The court, which had granted him bail on May 15, had set out several conditions for Raja. The court had barred him from visiting Tamil Nadu and the Department of Telecom (DoT) office without its prior permission.
"As the MP from Udhagamandalam he has to discharge his duties in the constituency and as propaganda secretary of DMK he has to discharge functions throughout the state. He has mentioned the reasons and asked for relaxation in bail conditions," Raja`s lawyer had told the court.
Raja is now expected to meet DMK president M Karunanidhi, visit Ooty and his home district Perambalur. If reports are to be believed, preparations are already underway for a grand reception for Raja in Ooty and Perambalur.
