Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal allowed Tharoor’s application seeking permission for eight visits to five countries, including the US, Canada and Germany, till December.
The court placed several conditions on Tharoor, while noting that there was nothing on record to suggest that he may flee justice.
“He (Tharoor) has cooperated with the investigation. He had appeared before court on the first date in pursuance of the summons issued to him. There is nothing on record to presume that he may flee justice,” it said.
The court directed the Congress MP to furnish a fixed deposit of Rs 2 lakh, which will be refunded after his return.
It asked him to inform the investigating officer and the court about the travel details and his arrival in the country.
The court also directed him not to tamper with the evidence or influence the witnesses.
