She has been granted bail on a surety of Rs 500,000 after the National Investigation Agency had granted a ‘clean chit’ to her in May 2016.

However, the court rejected an appeal filed by another co-accused in the same case, former army officer Lt. Col. Prasad Purohit, challenging a lower court rejecting his bail plea.

Six persons were killed in the blast in Malegaon, a Muslim-dominated powerloom town in Nashik district in September 2008.
