A bench of Justices SA Bobde and L Nageswara Rao asked Maudany to bear the expenses incurred on his escort provided by Karnataka Police.

Last Friday, the apex court had agreed to hear Monday the plea by Maudany seeking to visit Kerala.

Maudany (51) has challenged the trial court's order of 24 July declining him permission to attend his son's wedding functions between 8 and 20 August.

The trial court had, however, allowed him to visit his ailing mother from 1 to 7 August, but had declined him the permission to attend his son's wedding on 9 August.

In his plea, Maudany said he was granted bail in July 2014 with a condition that he would not leave Bengaluru without permission.
