The court allowed Tytler's plea in which he had said he has to go to Turkey to attend a meeting of the International Kurash Association (IKA) and the ninth world Kurash senior championship.
"In the totality of facts and circumstances, application is allowed and the accused Jagdish Tytler is permitted to visit Turkey from December 11 to January 1," Special CBI Judge VK Gupta said.
Tytler is the chairman of International Kurash Association, according to IKA website. During the arguments, the CBI opposed Tytler's plea contending that there was no "pressing reasons" given by him for visiting abroad and the former Union minister is an "influential person".
CBI argued that there is a possibility that Tytler may not return to India. The court, however, allowed the plea and directed Tytler to furnish a security of Rs five lakh. It also said Tytler will not tamper with the evidence and will submit the address and telephone number where he will be staying in Turkey.
He was granted bail in the case on September 30 on a personal bond of Rs two lakh with two sureties of the like amount. The Congress leader, in his plea, had sought permission to go abroad to enable him to "attend the IKA Directing Committee meeting, the IKA XIV ordinary congress meeting and the IX world kurash senior championship."
CBI has alleged that Tytler had "actively connived" with Verma to cheat a Chinese telecom firm and the Congress leader had first shown a "fake and forged" letter to the company's official, claiming that it was written by Maken to the Prime Minister.
