23 June 2015

The bail hearing of Reliance Industries in-house counsel Janhavi Gadkar, who is accused of driven while drunk and killing two men, was adjourned in the Kurla metropolitan magistrate’s court yesterday to 25 June amidst arguments between counsel.

Advocate Dimple Shah, representing Gadkar, had argued that they needed access to the treatment records Gadkar had received in hospital for a fractured hand to ascertain whether she had received the correct medical care, reported Mid Day. Her bail application would rely on the medical report, Shah told the court.

Public prosecutor Prahlad Mahajan told the defence to argue for bail immediately, rather than asking for another adjournment.

The Mumbai Mirror reported that after examination in prison by an orthopaedic surgeon on 15 June, where she complained of pain in “upper left abdomen, left hand, rib region and drowsiness”, Gadkar was taken to JJ Hospital on 17 June, where she was diagnosed with a fractured wrist without normal chest X-Ray and ECG results.

Mahajan said that the defence should file a written application asking for adjournment, and that the medical care she had received was sufficient.
