US national Nooriya Haveliwala was granted bail by the Bombay high court on Friday, after the bench observed that it would be a while before the appeal she had filed against her conviction in the 2010 drink-driving case would be heard.

Haveliwala’s counsel had arg-ued that bail should be granted in “short” cases, where the accu-sed was convicted for less than seven or five years in prison.

Haveliwala had been given a five-year term after two people died and four were injured in the accident.
