Aruna Chadha, an accused in former airhostess Geetika Sharma's suicide case, withdrew her bail plea on Friday from the Delhi High Court with the liberty to file a fresh one in the trial court.
Chadha's counsel Ramesh Gupta withdrew the plea after Justice Manmohan declined to give an early date to hear it in October and posted it for November.
"If such a long date is given, the purpose of bail application will be defeated because police will file a chargesheet in the case and the situation will be different by then," Gupta told the court.
Justice Manmohan allowed Gupta to withdraw the plea, saying "the bail plea is allowed to be withdrawn with the liberty to file fresh bail petition before trial court".
Chadha worked in former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda's now-defunct MDLR Airlines, where Geetika was an airhostess.
She had sought bail on the plea that she has a seven-year-old daughter and elderly parents to look after.
"Applicant (Chadha) has old and ailing parents (father aged 71 years and mother 63) and both are suffering from heart and other ailments," the plea said.
She had contended that the material collected by police did not show that she was involved in abetting Geetika's suicide.
"The bare perusal of the FIR and the material collected by the investigating agency do not show that the applicant is involved in any manner in the abetment of suicide or conspiracy," the bail plea said.
