By John Edwards, Panaji, Mar 14 : With a little over one hour left for the order on his bail plea to be pronounced, the disgraced former editor-in-chief of Tehelka magazine, Tarun Tejpal, has been allowed to meet his critically-ill mother who is in her last stage of brain tumour.
The order by Additional Sessions Court was following an application filed by Tejpal yesterday as his mother is admitted in the Intensive Care Unit at a private hospital.
His counsel Swapnil Naschinolkar said Tejpal will be escorted by a police team from the Sada sub-jail where he is currently lodged till the hospital and back. He is likely to meet his mother tomorrow morning.
Meanwhile, the high court will shortly announce its order on his bail application.
