Doc couple's bail plea rejected

Doc couple's bail plea rejected

A Delhi court on Friday rejected the bail plea of the medico's wife and slammed the doctor couple for trying to settle the case against them by offering Rs 75,000 to their minor maid.

They had allegedly left the maid locked-up and starving in their flat on March 25 while they had gone on vacation in Bangkok.

The couple had appeared before the court after expiry of their two days in police custody. The court extended the couple's police remand for another three days after the probe agency said it needed their custody for further interrogation.

"Bail application for the accused (Sumita Verma) is dismissed. Both the accused are directed to appear before it on April 9," the court said.

Sumita had pleaded for the bail saying that she is a mother of an 11-year-old girl and there is no one in her family to look after her.

The court said it was not possible as they were charged with non-compoundable offences.
