Rupam Pathak granted bail by Patna High Court


Patna,(BiharTimes): The Patna High Court on Tuesday granted bail to Rupam Pathak in the BJP MLA Raj Kishore Kesari murder case. She was granted bail by a joint bench of Justice V N Sinha & Justice Shivajee Pandey of the Patna High Court.

Rupam, a school principal of Purnea, stabbed to death the MLA on Jan 4, 2011 at his residence in the town, after her plea that he and his aide, Bipin Rai, gangraped her, failed to elicit any response from the authority.

She was sentenced to life imprisonment on April 10, 2012 by a special court. Bipin Rai, another accused, has already been granted bail.

Her case was unique as she had murdered a ruling party’s four time MLA.
