The LT Marg police filed an application in the sessions court challenging the magistrate’s order to grant bail to Nooriya Haveliwala on Thursday.
On January 30, Haveliwala, who was allegedly drunk, had rammed her SUV into six people killing a biker and a policeman. “The magistrate had granted her bail saying that the police had not filed a charge sheet even after 60 days of her arrest, we have challenged the order of the magistrate”, said public prosecutor, R.V. Kini.
Kini said the police had 90 days to file a charge sheet in the case. On March 31, the Esplanade metropolitan magistrate court granted bail to Nooriya as the police did not file charge sheet after stipulated 60 days period.
Nooriya’s lawyers had said that the police should have filed the charge sheet within 60 days as she was charged for culpable homicide not amounting to murder under which she can be punished for a maximum of 10 years.
On February 26, the sessions court had rejected her bail application after the police told the court that she did not stop the vehicle even after spotting policemen on duty.
Nooriya had moved the high court against the order of the sessions court. After the magistrate’s court granted her bail she withdrew the bail application from the high court.
The court is likely to hear the application of the LT Marg police on April 15.
