Former Telecom Minister A Raja, facing trial in the 2G spectrum allocation case, was today allowed by a Delhi court to visit Tamil Nadu till November 25 from tomorrow.

Special CBI Judge O P Saini gave Raja permission to visit Tamil Nadu on his plea, after it was not opposed by the CBI.

The court also allowed the plea of Swan Telecom promoter and 2G case accused Vinod Goenka to visit Sri Lanka from November 26 to November 28 for business purposes.

Raja sought permission to visit his native place because the court, while granting him bail on May 15 this year, had stipulated that he would not visit his home state without its prior permission.

"Accused A Raja has filed an application for permission to visit Tamil Nadu from November 23 till the night of November 25, 2012.

"Senior Public Prosecutor has no objection to the prayer. Prayer allowed. Accused A Raja is permitted to visit Tamil Nadu...," the judge said.

The court had granted bail to the 49-year-old DMK MP and had directed him not to visit the Department of Telecom (DoT), which he hade presided over as minister, and not to make any inducement, threat or promise, either directly or indirectly, to any person linked to the case.

Raja, along with DMK MP Kanimozhi and others, is facing trial for offences punishable under various provisions of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption Act dealing with offences of criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery, faking documents, abusing official position, criminal misconduct by public servant and taking bribe.
