HC refuses bail to Pratyusha’s parents

Justice Raja Elango of the Hyderabad High Court on Wednesday refused to grant bail to step-mother and father of Pratyusha the teenaged girl who was rescued by the neighbours when she was found tortured in the house. The Judge was dismissing the bail petition filed by Ch. Chamundeswari alias Syamala who is the step-mother of the girl. Ramesh Kumar, natural father also filed the case for bail and this was rejected too. It may be recalled that the Bench of High Court took up the case and ordered for her rehabilitation.

Syamala and Ramesh moved the High Court contending that the LB Nagar police of Hyderabad city have completed the investigation and the charge-sheet was filed in the case. The public prosecutor told the court that there might be threat to the victim girl (Pratyusha) and scope for threatening the victim and other witnesses.
