Nithya Bhatkananda, a close aide of Nithyananda, on Wednesday petitioned the Karnataka High Court on Wednesday for relaxation of bail conditions.
In his petition, Nithya Bhaktananda said that the High Court while granting him bail on June 11, 2010, had asked him not to leave the jurisdiction of the court and to mark attendance once a fortnight at the Bidadi police station.
Nithya Bhaktananda said that his wife is in the United States and he has to go to the U.S. for filing his tax returns. The additional State public prosecutor opposed relaxation of bail. Justice Subash B. Adi said the matter could be listed before the regular court and adjourned further hearing of the case.
