The Bombay High Court Friday granted bail to Nooriya Haveliwala, the NRI sentenced last November to five-year in prison for rash and negligent driving leading to death of two persons including a traffic policeman in January 2010.
Justice R P Sondurbaldota granted bail pending hearing of her appeal against the conviction, and the appeal of the state government seeking enhancement of jail term to 10 years and challenging her being acquitted of Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act charges.
Nooriya had been found guilty of homicide not amounting to murder. Nooriya, daughter of Yusuf Haveliwala, a psychiatrist in the US Army, had on January 30, 2010, rammed her SUV into seven people, killing two persons, including a traffic policeman, and injuring five others, including four other policemen.
