Mumbai: A magistrate`s court today
granted bail to beautician Nooriya Haveliwala in the drunken
driving case as police failed to file chargesheet within the
stipulated period.


She will have to produce one surety of Rs 15,000, her
lawyer Renuka Laxmeshwar said.

Two persons were killed after being hit by
Haveliwala`s car in Marine Lines on January 30. Police have
alleged the South Mumbai resident, who are arrested on the
same day, was under the influence of alcohol at the time of
the incident.


Under the law, police have to file a chargesheet
within 60 days from the day of the arrest, failing which the
accused is entitled to bail, Laxmeshwar said.


Haveliwala had filed a bail application before the
Bombay High Court too, but it will be withdrawn now, the
lawyer said.
