Koderma: A day after she filed a petition in court seeking bail, Sudha Pathak, the mother of deceased journalist Nirupama, on Friday withdrew it to make a fresh appeal with additional inputs.

Her counsel pleaded before Chief Judicial Magistrate N K
Aggarwal here that she was withdrawing her bail petition to
add some more documents.

Sudha was arrested and remanded in judicial custody in
connection with her 22-year-old daughter`s death under
mysterious circumstances on April 29. She had petitioned for
bail yesterday.

The police, investigating among other angles whether the
incident was connected to `honour killing`, have also filed a
case of rape and abetment to suicide against Nirupama`s
boyfriend Priyabhanshu Ranjan on the direction of the local
court.
