Female pilot gets bailExcerpt: A Delhi court has granted anticipatory bail to an IndiGo woman pilot, who has been named by DGCA for procuring flying licence by allegedly submitting forged marks certificates.

Moving the bail application, the accused stated that she was a 40-year-old unmarried woman who was the only support for her aged parents. Counsel Aggarwal also stated that the women in the country should be given a special status and the accused being an unmarried woman could not be kept in jail.

Allowing the plea, ASJ Bhatnagar said, “Since the accused is a female and she has already joined the investigation and her custodial interrogation is not required… it is hereby ordered that in the event of arrest, the accused be released on bail.”
