2015 drunk-drive-killing-alleged lawyer Janhavi Gadkar re-appeals against revocation of licence • SPP finally appointed January

Corporate lawyer Janhavi Gadkar, who stands accused of killing two when driving on the wrong side of a freeway when drunk in Mumbai in 2015, has appealed to the Bombay high court against the regional transport office (RTO) revokation of her driving licence for life, reported the Times of India.

Justice Ramesh Dhanuka last week on Thursday scheduled that her appeal be heard on July 5.

In January, Mid Day had listed her case as one of the trials to “watch out for in 2018” and that “it’s slated to one of the most talked-about criminal cases in the city”.

Charges were reportedly set to be framed in September 2016, but the Times of India had reported in 2017 that special public prosecutor Rohini Salian had been appointed after the “case has been getting adjournments after adjournments for last six months for lack of PP”.

She had spent 57 days in jail before getting bail and in June 2017 had been granted permission to visit Europe on a holiday.

Gadkar had been seeking the return of her licence for a while, with a sessions court ordering the return of her licence in December 2015, but the RTO was reported in January 2016 to have been drafting a final order not to return her licence for life.

The woman mows down 2 people while driving on the wrong side while drunk. I mean she has the guts to even appeal for this. Even Salman Khan has more shame than this. The lady should be put behind bars immediately and an example should be made out of her case.

Never ever should she be allowed to sit behind a wheel again. This will be one big service for the society at large.

Ruined a family's life forever but let that not get in the way of trying to getting back on the road again. Well done Gadkar.

Two families my friend, two families. She may take a defence that the taxi didnt have airbags and potentially litigate against Fiat / Hindustan Motors.

Thousands die on the road everyday but Jhanvi has been targeted because she was driving a luxury car (Audi) and a successful woman lawyer who had worked for a top conglomerate. If this is not victimisation then what is?!

I will not drink and drive on the road in an Audi. However, no commitment for footpath or if a BMW is purchased or if it is Gurgaon. On footpath, the car automatically becomes a driverless car. Car's training at SK driving school.

Why is Kian not mentioning the law school she was from? As in:"GLC drink-drive-killing accused alum appealing decision"

For the same reason, that Kian / LI does not mention the NLS connection for the various GCs/ partners who are known to misbehave with women!
