The Bombay High Court has granted bail to doctors Hema Ahuja, Bhakti Mehere and Ankita Khandelwal, the three accused in the Dr Payal Tadvi suicide case.
The three doctors from BYL Nair Hospital were accused of abetting Dr Tadvi's suicide, apart from ragging and caste discrimination.
The High Court today allowed the release of the three accused on bail with strict conditions to report to the concerned authorities every alternate day until the framing of charges. The accused have also been directed not to leave the city. Further, bail has been granted on the furnishing of a PR bond of Rs 2 lakhs each.
Other conditions imposed as part of the grant of bail include a bar on the accused from entering the jurisdiction of the BYL Nair Hospital and the Topiwala Medical college.
After a special court rejected their bail applications last month, the three accused doctors had moved to Bombay High Court seeking bail. The special court had rejected their bail applications, stating that there was a likelihood of the accused doctors trying to abscond or tamper with the evidence.
