The court told Sai to surrender in four days from the date of his release from Surat jail if his mother's surgery does not take place till then. Sai, who is in jail since December 2013, is likely to come out of Surat jail on Tuesday. The relief for Sai came amid reports of attacks on witnesses of rape cases against him and his father Asaram, who is behind bars in Jodhpur in connection with a rape case.

The High Court had on April 16 granted three-week bail to Sai for attending the proposed surgery of his mother Lakshmiben for a cervical ailment at a hospital in Ahmedabad.

However, the Supreme Court had on April 29 modified the order saying that Sai would be released on bail only after the date of his mother's operation was fixed. The Apex Court had acted then on a plea of Gujarat police seeking cancellation of interim bail granted to Sai on various grounds including that the accused may tamper with evidence in the case in which charges are yet to be framed.
