The Bombay High Court on Monday directed Telugu poet Varavara Rao, 81, to give up again to the Taloja Central Jail on September 25. It posted the problem for hearing on September 27

Mr Rao, an accused withinside the Bhima Koregaon caste violence, was granted interim scientific bail on February 22 for six months on a cash bond of ₹ 50,000 through a Division Bench of justices S.S. Shinde and Manish Pitale. Due to putting off in acquiring a solvency certificate, he was released on March 6. From then on, he has been living together along with his wife P. Hemalatha at Malad East. The bail expired on September 5.

Senior advocate Anand Grover, appearing for Mr Rao, informed a department bench of Justices Shinde and N.J. Jamadar that Mr Rao was residing in a rented flat together along with his spouse. His plea urged the court to permit him to live in Hyderabad together along with his family rather than Mumbai.

Mr Rao seeks an extension for the reason that he is taking 13 drugs each day for neurological problems, cholesterol, blood pressure, prostate, acidity, gastroesophageal reflux, constipation, cardiac issues and ache relief. He has been laid low with consistent complications, called cluster headaches and needs further examination and consistent supervision. A neurologist at Jaslok Hospital stated he has asymptomatic Parkinson’s disorder and has retention problems, movement disorders with tremors and gait instability.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is probing the case, filed an affidavit that read, “The Taloja jail authorities have been following the jail code and providing the best medical facilities as per jail manual. The surgery for cataract and hernia can be done in judicial custody under the supervision of doctors of government hospitals in Mumbai and there is no need for an extension of medical bail.”
