Raja can go home

New Delhi, June 6 (PTI): Former telecom minister A. Raja, who received bail in the 2G case last month, was today allowed by a Delhi court to visit his home state Tamil Nadu between June 8 and June 30.

Special CBI judge .P. Saini allowed the plea in which the DMK MP had said that he had not visited Tamil Nadu for a year and a half.

Raja had pointed out that there would be no trial proceedings 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.

The court had imposed several conditions on Raja, including a ban on his visit to Tamil Nadu without permission as well as to the Department of Telecom, which he had headed. The court asked Raja to surrender his passport and be present for hearings.
