Rao was one of the five activists who was detained on 28 August from various cities for their alleged involvement in the violence that erupted in Pune in January, 2018 during an event organised to mark 200 years of the Bhima Koregaon battle.

He was later put under house arrest in Hyderabad following an order by the Supreme Court on 30 August.

After several hearings in the case, the Supreme Court on 28 September turned down the request to set up a Special Investigating Team (SIT) to probe the Bhima Koregaon violence case and extended the house arrest of five activists for four more weeks.

Earlier in the day, the Maharashtra government had approached the Supreme Court challenging the Bombay High Court order that refused to grant more time to the Pune Police for filing charge sheet against activists arrested in connection with the Bhima Koregaon case.
