Court allows Anand Teltumbde's plea to call mother for five minutes after brother's encounter killing
Anand Teltumbde is currently lodged in Taloja jail following his arrest in the Elgar Parishad case in April 2020.
Rao, 82, had been granted interim bail for six months on medical grounds by the HC on February 22 this year.
