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.
