The counsel for the eight girls arrested from the centers for examination of the PGI's MD/MS examination, including seven dummy candidates, moved a bail application in a local court Monday. The court has given the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) time till December 20 to reply to the matter. Also, the counsel for three other persons who were nabbed from the hotels had moved a bail application which is also listed for the same day.
Rabindra Pandit, counsel for the eight girls said, "Whether the girls cheated in the exam or they leaked the papers is a question which will be proved during the trial of the court. Hence the liberty of the person cannot be withheld".
He added that apart from this, there are two women who have children six months old. "Manjula has her child living with her in the jail while another alleged dummy candidate Devika has a child who is with Devika's family," he said.
Also, SS Rana, counsel for another three, Thamin Khan, Afroz and P Bharat Chand had also moved an application for bail. The three were arrested from a hotel in Chandigarh who allegedly helped the kingpin Gurivi Reddy in leaking the question papers of the PGI's MD/MS examination.
Counsel for the accused women also said that there is a provision for leniency under the criminal code of procedure, 437.
The CBI had to give a reply on the bail application for the three accused boys for whom the bail application was moved last week. However, the case has been adjourned to December 20 for arguments for the bail.
