HC allows Adnan Sami to visit abroad
Bombay High Court today allowed singer Adnan Sami to travel Pakistan, his home country, to meet his ailing mother and further to London for her medical treatment, from May 11 to 28. The actor moved local police station for the return of the passport after the order.
Yesterday, while hearing Sami's application in this regard, Justice Revati Mohite-Dere had directed the Oshiwara police here to return him his passport after he submitted his itinerary, and details of the places where he intends to stay and contact numbers.
Sami is embroiled in a legal battle, involving civil as well as criminal cases, with his former wife Sabah Galadari. He had handed over his passport to the police on the court's order earlier.
Sami yesterday furnished undertakings of two sureties and promised to file undertaking of another surety on Monday.
'In view of compliance of the (earlier) orders, the applicant is permitted to travel to Pakistan to meet his ailing mother and to London, if required, for her treatment from May 11 to May 28,' said the Judge.
Sami pleaded that he may be required to travel even later for a concert on June 8. The court said he would be able to retain the passport upon his return till June 4, so that he could apply for a visa again.
