Court allows Raja to visit Tamil Nadu

Former Telecom Minister A. Raja  

Former Telecom Minister and key accused in the 2G scam case, A. Raja, was on Wednesday allowed by a Delhi court to visit his home State Tamil Nadu between June 8 and June 30.

Mr. Raja had moved the plea seeking permission to visit Tamil Nadu as the court, while granting him bail on May 15, had imposed certain conditions, including that he would not visit his home State without its prior permission.

Special CBI Judge O.P. Saini allowed the plea, in which the DMK MP had said that he had not visited Tamil Nadu for the last over one-and-a-half year.

Mr. Raja had sought court’s permission also on the ground that the trial proceedings would not be undertaken from June 9 to June 30 owing to summer vacation.

“A. Raja is allowed to visit his home State Tamil Nadu from June 8 to June 30 subject to conditions as were imposed upon him in the bail order dated May 15,” the judge said.

Mr. Raja was granted bail by the court holding that his further detention would not serve any purpose as all the other 13 co-accused are already out on bail.
