Mr. Rao’s bail conditions do not permit travel out of Greater Mumbai
The Supreme Court on August 16 allowed activist-poet Varavara Rao, an accused in the Bhima Koregaon case, to move the trial court for permission to go to his native Hyderabad for cataract surgery in order to spare himself the expenses of doing it in Mumbai.
A three-judge Bench led by Justice U.U. Lalit asked the trial court to decide Mr. Rao’s plea, if made, for leave to go to Hyderabad, within three weeks.
