UP: Some more time before Khushi Dubey walks free - Kanpur (UP) News

Her bail forms have been filed in the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) but the court has ordered verification of the same.

After the verification report of the sureties is received, the court will issue orders for Khushi's release from Mati jail in Kanpur Dehat. The court had ordered two sureties of Rs 1.5 lakh each.

The Supreme Court had granted bail to Khushi Dubey on January 6.

Shivakant Dixit, the counsel of Khushi Dubey, said that in compliance with the court's order, bail forms have been filed in the court of additional district and sessions judge-XIII Shailendra Kumar Verma as well as in the Juvenile Justice Board. As the court has ordered their verification, after the verification report of the sureties is received, it will issue orders for the release of Khushi.

Recently, while granting bail to Khushi, the Supreme Court had said that as she was only 17 years old at the time of the incident, and her trial has started in the case, there is no justification for keeping her in jail.

It may be recalled that, a case of robbery and attempt to murder was registered against Vikas Dubey, a resident of Bikru village of Chaubepur.

On July 3, 2020, the police raided Bikru village to arrest him.

Vikas Dubey and his more than four dozen aides had attacked and killed eight policemen, including a deputy superintendent of police.

Later, the police killed six accused, including Vikas Dubey and Amar Dubey in back-to-back encounters. Vikas was killed on July 10, when he tried to flee from the police custody while being brought from Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh.

Khushi was made an accused in 17 cases, including murder and conspiracy. She had been married for three days when the incident took place.
