Mussoorie: After spending over 40 days in jail in Dehradun for her illegal stay of over six months at the Mussoorie-based Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA), Ruby Choudhary was granted bail on Saturday.
Rajiv Raturi, lawyer for the 25-year-old, stated that as the prosecution was unable to prove the purpose of her stay at the academy, she was granted bail.
The case of Ms Choudhary surfaced in April when she was caught illegally staying at LBSNAA. A Special Investigation Team (SIT) was formed by the Uttarakhand Police to investigate into the case.
She had been staying at the residence of Deb Singh, a security guard, who has been suspended. She allegedly paid him a rent of Rs. 1,500.
Her cover was blown when the security staff of President Pranab Mukherjee, who is to visit the academy later this month, scrutinized the list of IAS probationers staying there.
Due to the alleged involvement of some employees at the IAS academy who felicitated the illegal stay of Ruby Chaudhry, the Uttarakhand Director General of Police BS Sidhu had requested the State government to transfer the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation.
However, the State government has declined from transferring the case to the CBI for further investigation.
