KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday permitted actor Shalu Menon, who is an accused in the solar panel cheating case, to visit Dubai to attend a dance function.

Justice Thomas P Joseph passed the order on the petition by Shalu Menon seeking release of her passport, which was surrendered before the court, as part of the bail condition. The court has eased the bail conditions for six months.

The court however imposed stringent conditions and directed her to furnish a bond of `50,000 along with two solvent sureties. The court also directed to deposit `25,000 before the trial court and surrender the passport after six months.

P Vijaya Bhanu, senior counsel for the petitioner, submitted that she has been invited for a stage performance-Suruma eid night-to be held in Dubai.

The prosecution however argued that being a popular serial artist she is highly influential and there was every possibility that the petitioner may adopt tactics to delay the trial proceedings in the case deliberately.

The trial proceedings have already been commenced and the Magistrate Court posted the case to Thursday.  The investigation reveals that the accused with the help of first accused Biju Radhakrishnan amassed lakhs of rupees. The police submitted she used the fund to lead a luxurious life.
