Erode: A local court here has relaxed the bail conditions granted to former Tamil Nadu Minister N K K P Raja and his wife in connection with an assault case.

Raja and his wife Uma Maheshwari had surrendered before a court at Perundurai near here on November 10 after being granted conditional bail in the case on November 7.

Principal District Judge, Jayasankaran, before whom the petition for bail relaxation came up yesterday, ordered Raja to appear before the judicial magistrate at Gopichettipalayam every Monday and Friday and sign the register.

He also directed Raja's wife to appear before the Judicial Magistrate at Perundurai and sign the register every Friday.

Crime-Branch CID police had filed a case against Raja for allegedly assaulting a man, who had earlier accused him of kidnapping and land grabbing, on October 21.

On November 7, Additional Sessions Judge V Jayaraman, while granting conditional bail to the couple, had directed Raja to present himself in the district court every day and sign the register. He was also directed to surrender his passport and gun licence.

Raja was expelled from the primary membership of DMK on October 25 for violating party discipline. He was dropped from the Cabinet last year following the land grabbing allegation.

Raja had sought anticipatory bail for himself and his wife on November 3.
