HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad High Court has refused to grant bail to Ch Chamundeswari alias Syamala and Ramesh Kumar, parents of   Pratyusha.

In July this year, Pratyusha, a 19-year-old girl was rescued from the clutches of her stepmother Syamala in the city. The High Court took up the case and ordered for her rehabilitation. The state government has come forward for rehabilitation of Pratyusha. Her father Ramesh Kumar and stepmother Syamala were arrested by the LB Nagar police, Cyberabad on July 9 and sent to judicial remand.

Syamala and Ramesh moved the High Court with a plea to release them on bail since investigation was completed and that the chargesheet was filed in the case.

Opposing grant of bail to the accused, the Telangana public prosecutor submitted that though the chargesheet was filed in the case it would not be justifiable to release them on bail at this stage. There might be threat to Pratyusha and scope for threatening the victim and other witnesses with dire consequences if enlarged on bail. Taking these submissions into consideration, Justice Raja Elango dismissed the bail petition of the accused.
